LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The Las Vegas Wranglers raised a total of $8,030 for Children's Hospital of Nevada at UMC by way of a special jersey auction and ticket proceeds from a recent game.

On Friday, Jan. 19, the players suited up in jerseys adorned with a Children's Hospital of Nevada patch which were auctioned following the game. Fans snagged the game-worn jerseys for $6,180 and ticket sales added $1,850.

"We are very grateful to the Wranglers for this extremely generous donation," said Children's Hospital of Nevada's Lisa Pacheco. "From the team's visit to Children's Hospital of Nevada last week, to a great night on the ice, we can feel the heartwarming support for our pediatric patients."

The Wranglers will head east this weekend for a trio of road games before returning to Orleans Area for a four-game series with the Bakersfield Condors beginning on Wednesday, Jan. 30.
