EXCITING NEWS!  For the first time EVER, OUR Jacket Backers Foundation has been granted the 50/50 raffle at the game on OPENING NIGHT on Thursday, October 13 vs Boston, by the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation.  We are so excited to have been offered this opportunity.  Now we need your help!

Please show us your JB support and consider volunteering to help us fundraise with this tremendous opportunity to fund our charitable mission to support hockey-related and community charities, with a special emphasis on the CBJ Foundation and the causes they support.  We are seeking 30 volunteers over 18 years old who are able to arrive 2.5 hours prior to game start.  Volunteer duties include selling tickets, counting cash and handling tickets.  We realize that many of you already have game tickets and wonder if you'd consider sharing them with others just this once.

If you are planning on attending the game - please consider asking your friends, family and co-workers who may not be as into hockey as we all are, to see if they would be willing to give us a hand on this exciting evening and important opportunity for our club.

Also, please encourage everyone you know (and even those you don't) to stop by and generously purchase 50/50 tickets on opening night!!  50% of the proceeds will go to one lucky winner and the remaining 50% will be split 25% to the CBJ Foundation and 25% to the JB Foundation.  We must have 30 volunteers in order to receive the full 25%.  So any way you all can help will be greatly appreciated!

To volunteer or for more information, please contact Julie at foundation@jacketbackers.org

THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT - PLEASE MAKE US ALL PROUD OF WHAT WE CAN ACCOMPLISH TOGETHER AND LET'S SHOW ALL THE CBJ AND BOSTON FANS WHO THE JACKET BACKERS ARE!!
