The Tri-City Americans will host their fifth annual CH2M Hill Nuclear Night on Friday when the Seattle Thunderbirds come to town.

On the concourse, there will be auctions, limited-edition Nuclear Night merchandise and Hanford History Outreach from the B-Reactor Museum.

The nuclear-inspired team jerseys that will be worn Friday night, will be auctioned on-line after the game at AmsHockeyAuctions.com. Online bidding will start at 10:30 p.m. Friday and will feature all game-worn and non game-worn player jerseys, and additional blank jerseys that do not have player names or numbers. Minimum bid per jersey is $250 with a buy-it-now option of $500. The auction closes at 10 p.m. Sunday, with all proceeds benefiting the Player’s Continuing Education Fund.
