$250 isn't bad, especially if you luck out and get a jersey. Anyone know what the odds are on those?

I want a 250 bag. Can't afford 1k. Plus it's a good cause.

They don't say on the website. I got a Lemieux jersey the first year I bought one. My son and I already ordered our $250 bags on the pre-sale.

If you have purchased in the past you should get an email about it from the Foundation.

Pre-sale was for those selected who purchased bags before, I got the email but forgot all about it and the pre sale is sold out so I will have to order one tomorrow. I have ordered the $250 bag the last two (maybe 3?) years (shipped to Minnesota) and I have not got a jersey in any. Got lots of bobbleheads I never opened, though. Might be worth something sometime. I got a couple of Lemieux signed pucks too.

Like Antonio said, it's a good cause. Plus you can write it off on your taxes.

I would be careful with that. Something about receiving a good or service in return for your "contribution". Maybe I'm wrong.

Mario has always surrounded himself with smart folks~ this venture is a win all.
I don't run with the big dogs, my extra coin goes to tickets only.

You can write off the difference between what you paid and the value you received. I don't take mine as a deduction.

I wish they would do a mini bag for maybe $100 that has some fairly cool stuff and the “big” prize would be signed Puck or bobble head.

What the heck, I took a shot at a $250 one. Even if I don't get a jersey, I still think you get your money's worth out of it.

I got the $250 version one time. I got a signed Orpik puck. However, the chance you may get a signed jersey was worth the donation to the charity. I may do one tomorrow.

I was able to get a black one after about 45 minutes of the servers being screwed up. Hopefully there's a jersey in it when it arrives.

My luck... I'd get an Orpik puck now.

I'm 0 for 2 on jerseys. So, maybe the third time is a charm.

Now, the dreaded wait for it to ship.
