Are you still looking for a Christmas gift for that special hockey fan on your shopping list?
How about a blue seat from the old Forum signed by six members of the current Canadiens roster?
Last Thursday, The Gazette started an auction for the Forum seat through eBay on hockeyinsideout.com with all the money going to The Gazette Christmas Fund, now in its 47th year of putting food on the tables and gifts under the holiday trees of less fortunate Montrealers.
As of noon-hour Monday, the top bid was $1,125. You can place a bid by going to hockeyinsideout.com/auction. For more information on The Gazette Christmas Fund, go to montrealgazette.com/christmasfund.
The six Canadiens players — Carey Price, Brian Gionta, Travis Moen, Colby Armstrong, Josh Gorges and Brandon Prust — signed the seat during another Gazette Christmas Fund fund-raiser last month in which Montrealer Caroline Tardif bid $3,300 in an eBay auction through hockeyinsideout.com to dine at Montreal steak house Moishes along with the Canadiens players and The Gazette’s Dave Stubbs.
