Every year the Griffins swap out their normal gear for the purple jerseys and it's become one of the most popular games every season. Not only because they raise money for a great cause, but because hardcore fans loved getting exclusive gear only available once a year.

You can currently bid until Monday on items like Detroit Red Wings tickets, Griffins signed jerseys, sticks and pucks, and more HERE. Plus the exclusive Purple Community/Griffins gear usually sold on gamenight is available HERE.
