The annual trip costs about $1500, explained Roby Sharpe at the 13th annual Football Night in Saskatchewan event held Saturday in the city.

Funding for the trip has largely come through an auction at Football Night of a Chad Nehring hockey jersey.

This year the jersey for the Springside-born forward who played Junior hockey with the Yorkton Terriers from 2004-2007, came from the Fischtown Penguins the German team Nehring has played with the past two seasons.

The jersey brought $1000 Saturday on a bid from Grain Millers in Yorkton.
