ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) - The Odessa Jackalopes are back on their home ice this week, and they’ll be playing for a great cause. It’s the annual Shriners Weekend, benefitting Shriners Hospital for Children.

The Jacks will wear special uniforms. The jerseys will then be auctioned off after Saturday’s game, with the proceeds going to the hospitals.

“I really think players love these opportunities,” Jackalopes Head Coach Jason Fortier said. “For one, they get a nice, unique jersey they can feel proud wearing. And two, being involved in the community where they feel like they’re doing good.”

The Jacks play on Friday and Saturday at 7:15 p.m. at the Ector County Coliseum.

Saturday’s game is also Odessa High night, with discounts for OHS students and staff (with an ID).

The Broncho band and other groups will perform at the game.
