Latest Cutters Jersey Auction Raises $3,023 for Charity
The Williamsport Crosscutters have announced a partnership with LiveSource to utilize fan engagement in a mobile auction platform for the 2018 season. The Cutters are utilizing the LiveSource mobile app to offer fans opportunities for their charitable jersey and cap auctions. The LiveSource app will provide a better experience for fans bidding at the ballpark, as the entire process can be done via a smartphone or tablet. Fans who are not in attendance will have the opportunity to bid through the app as well, eliminating the standard of in-person bidding. Payment, winning, bidding and delivery is all facilitated on mobile devices through the LiveSource app and website. The latest charitable jersey auction of patriotic jerseys on July 29 raised $3,023 for the local chapter of Blue Star Mothers of America. A previous auction of Law Enforcement jerseys raised $3,350 for the Lycoming Law Association. The Crosscutters final jersey auction of the season will take place this Thursday (August 9) when fans can bid on game-worn Cutters throwback jerseys. Fans can download the app today for iOS, Android and any smart device.
