Holtby's Tragically Hip mask raises $27K for Gord Downie charities
Proceeds will go to the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research and the Gord Downie Secret Path Fund for Truth and Reconciliation.
The mask shows various illustrations of the singer and the band in front of a white maple leaf.
Downie, 52, was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor in May. Over the summer, Downie and The Hip went across Canada as part of a farewell tour.
Like many Canadians, Holtby grew up as a fan of the band and their many hockey-themed songs, and as such chose to honor Downie with his mask design.
"I am very proud to have been a part of supporting these two important funds in Mr. Downie's honour," Holtby said in a release, "and I appreciate everyone's help in making this auction a success."
