Community Power Play

$1505 Raised in the 2015-2016 Season for The Blue Jackets Foundation #CommunityPowerPlay Goal!

 The Jacket Backers will again team up with the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation to present our 3rd ANNUAL COMMUNITY POWER PLAY!!   For each Power Play Goal scored by the Blue Jackets, the Jacket Backers will make a donation to the Blue Jackets Foundation – and we’d love it if you’d join us and match!  Use the donation button below to show your support and Celebrate Life and Hockey.

For the first PP Goal scored in each game, we will donate $20 to the Foundation, for the second PP Goal we will donate $40 more, for the third PP Goal we will donate $60 more and so on. If a PP goal turns out to be our game winner, we will add another $100 to the Foundation.  Help us celebrate the joy of scoring more power play goals!

Memorabilia Mart presented by Jacket Backers & RBar

Mark your calendar for Sunday, August 30th, 1-5pm. Doors will open at 11am for set-up and drop-off.  In case you don't remember our first Hockey Mart from a couple of years ago, here's the scoop. Whether you're interested in Buying, Selling or Donating... Do you have a bunch of hockey "stuff" you're looking to part with? Is there something you've always wanted that someone else might have?  Are you downsizing your "hockey cave" or ready to make room for new hockey collection items of your own?  Just want to give us some of your old "stuff" as a fundraiser?  Never fear - Hockey Memorabilia Mart is here!  This event is a fundraiser for our club and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to local charities.  This event is family-friendly & ok to bring your kids to!


To SELL items:  you can either 1 - name your price and consign an item(s) and 25% will go to the club or 2 - purchase an area of approximately 4' for $25 to better feature your own items!  Table space is limited - to reserve your spot and/or make prior arrangements to consign or donate items, please contact Julie at president@jacketbackers.org!

To DONATE items: you can either make arrangements to drop them off ahead of time or arrive early on the day of the sale to hand them over!  (If clothing, clean, gently-used items please.)


To BUY items: you can either show up and buy items outright or participate in our silent auction where select items will be featured!


There's no cost to attend.  R Bar is located at 
413 N Front Street, 43215 in the Arena District!  Plus you can take advantage of RBar's Sunday specials while you're there: 1 topping pizza and a pitcher of beer for only $14, and $3 Sailor Jerry drinks.
