The charitable foundation of the Bakersfield Condors, the Condors Community Foundation, announced a $2,500 donation to Erskine Fire relief efforts today. The donation is a result from the team's recent auction of six game-worn jerseys. An Iiro Pakrinen jersey was won during the auction, but never paid for, and has been relisted with proceeds to benefit relief efforts. Interested parties can be bid here. The auction will last five days and ends on Monday morning.
The Condors Community Foundation will donate the proceeds to the First Baptist Church of Lake Isabella, the Kern River Valley Rotary Club, the American Red Cross and Kern River Valley Elks Lodge.
The Erskine Fire, now 100% contained, burned over 48,000 acres east of Bakersfield, destroyed over 300 structures and killed two people near Lake Isabella.
