Before hosting the Orlando Magic affiliate Erie Bayhawks Friday night, the Delaware 87ers showed off some sweet R2-D2 jerseys for Star Wars night.

Chris Reichert of the Step Back passed along the first look.

According to the Sevens, they will auction off the jerseys to benefit Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. In addition, the team will donate 20 percent of tickets purchased with the promo code "NEMOURS" to the hospital.

While the jerseys are the star of the show, here's another cool nugget: "Jedi Master Yoda" will serve as the public address announcer.

A good promotion, this is.
