Hockey great Jeremy Roenick has just launched his new website Roenicklife.com in efforts to keep in touch with his fans and raise money for charity. Fans can read Jeremy’s blog, watch video’s and even snatch his personal Sharks/Dallas Stars game tickets right out of his hand via a special raffle on his site to benefit the Aubri Brown Foundation.
Prior to launching the site, Roenick reached out to the media via a touching letter where he explained his love for the fans and the game. “I have spent the past twenty-one years sharing my passion and myself with the game of hockey,” he wrote. “I have had the opportunity to touch the hearts of millions of fans and have been excited everyday to help create a smile on so many children’s faces… I need to be involved for myself… to keep touching the hearts of all the people that have supported me for half my life is a huge priority… I decided to take the website a step further, and incorporate my love of the game, my voice, and my passion to use the website as a place where constant communication between all supporters can be used to help benefit charity.”
Currently, Roenick is raffling several great items. For the price of $20 you get two tickets for a chance to win (or $15 for a single ticket) the coveted First Prize which includes: Two of Jeremy’s personal tickets to the March 21st San Jose Sharks vs. Dallas Stars Game, 2 round trip tickets (within the Continental U.S & Canada), 2 nights stay at a hotel and a personal meet and greet in the locker room after the game with Jeremy AND – recently added – Mike Modano! Second Prize: an autographed Jeremy Roenick Jersey; Third Prize is an 8×10 signed photo and Fourth Prize is a Roenicklife.com T-shirt.
