Hershey Bears Charity Jerseys

Thought we'd give a little link love to Bangin' Panger for this great feature they put up.

If you've been following the Hershey Bears at all this season, you know they were forced to wear some horrendous looking jerseys in the name of charity.

It seems all of the online ridicule the boys endured was worth it though. Here's the official press release.

"This season, the Hershey Bears hockey club has raised more than $120,000 for local charities and organizations. This result could not have been reached without the support of our fans. The Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Company (HE&R) and the Hershey Bears Hockey Club would like to thank our fans for the caring and generosity they exhibit every year during our jersey auctions," said Ted J. Kleisner, President and CEO of HE&R. "Together, the BEARS and their fans are making a difference in the lives of many in our community."

$120,000 to the good. Kinda makes wearing pink not that emasculating.

Check out Bangin' Panger for a complete recap of every Hershey Bears novelty jersey. Also, we'll be doing a few guest postings there as well with the playoffs coming up and all.
