The Vodafone Warriors have pledged to give an additional $2 from every single ticket sold for Sunday's clash with the Melbourne Storm for 24 hours from 10am on Wednesday, July 18 as the push to raise money for the club's four charity partners heats up.
The round 19 home clash at Mt Smart Stadium has been billed as The Great Vodafone Warriors Charity Day with the club pulling out all stops to raise money for Shine, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Paralympics NZ and Shine.
CEO Cameron George has already pledged to donate $50,000 if the game is a sell out with the donation reducing if the crowd is smaller.
In partnership with Vodafone, the club has set up a text-to-donate service where fans are being encouraged to donate $3 by texting Warriors to 4483.
Club partners Mitre 10 are also chipping in with a sizable donation based on the eventual crowd figure and corporate partners Rapid Property and DCS Builders have committed $1,000 each to the cause.
Meanwhile, the club's players and coaching staff have also got in on the act and have donated an array of amazing items that will be auctioned off or given away on the day.
Already, nearly $4,000 has been raised through a series of Trade Me auctions which include match-worn Anzac Day jerseys belonging to Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Simon Mannering.
The club also announced on Wednesday that head coach Stephen Kearney had dipped into his own personal stash of memorabilia and offered up a series of match-worn jerseys, including his original 1995 Vodafone Warriors strip. Those items have now been listed on Trade Me.
