RiverKings Raise $4300 with 90s Night Jersey Auction

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. – The Mississippi RiverKings, the Mid-South's longest continually operating professional sports franchise, have announced that Saturday's 90s night jersey auction raised $4300 for the RiverKings ReachOut Fund at the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi.

On Saturday, November 5, the RiverKings wore Space Jam inspired jerseys in celebration of the movie's twentieth anniversary for their 90s themed night against the Knoxville Ice Bears. Immediately following the game, the jerseys were auctioned off of the players' backs to benefit the RiverKings ReachOut Fund.

Originally labeled the Maddox Sports Donor Advised Fund, the RiverKings ReachOut Fund (RKRO) is housed at the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi and serves as the non-profit arm of the Mississippi RiverKings. The Fund has raised and distributed over $500,000 since it's inception in 2004. For more information about the RiverKings ReachOut Fund go to http://riverkings.com/riverkings-reachout.

The RiverKings next charity jersey auction comes on Friday, December 9 when the team will wear Memphis Grizzlies-inspired ugly-sweater jerseys. For ticket information, visit RiverKings.com or call 662-342-1755.
