The team will wear specialty jerseys that will be auctioned off via DASH Auction throughout the game with proceeds benefitting Tuskegee Airmen Hiram E Mann Chapter.
The Hiram E Mann Chapter was founded in 1998, with hopes to carry on the legacy of the Tuskegee airmen that trained at Walterboro Army Airfield. Their goal is to introduce youth to different aviation and STEM related career fields with youth-related activities and annual scholarships. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first black military aviators in the U.S. Army Air Corps (AAC), a precursor of the U.S. Air Force. They flew more than 15,000 individual routes in Europe and North Africa during World War II.
Saturday’s jersey auction will be conducted virtually through our partnered platform - DASH Auction beginning at 3 p.m. The sweaters will be auctioned in three segments, which will each close at different times. For more information about Saturday’s digital auction, visit our designated page.
