The Holtbys announce auction to raise money for Black Lives Matter DC and The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights
Braden Holtby and Brandi Holtby launched an auction on Monday morning entitled ‘Get Off the Bench for Racial Equality.’ The auction will raise money for Black Lives Matter DC and The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. The Holtbys will also donate $5,000 to each organization and match the funds raised through the auction.
The move comes after the Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender released a powerful note on Twitter last week denouncing racism and promising to help the Black Lives Matter movement in whatever way he can.
“Keep fighting, and I vow to demonstrate and educate what you are fighting for,” Holtby wrote. “Not only to myself but my children, family, and anyone else who will listen. Because America will never be great until all BLACK lives matter.”
