Jacket Backers make $1,015 donation to the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation
Friday night is the opening round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and there will be all kinds of activities going on in Nationwide Arena and the Arena District.
During the Blue Jackets Draft Party the Jacket Backers will be presenting the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation a check for $1,015. The donation will be made to sponsor a hole at the Golf Classic in memory of Ryan Salmons. The presentation is tentatively scheduled to happen at about 5:30. If you are at the draft party, be sure to watch for the presentation. Thank you to all of our members and fans that helped the Jacket Backers raise this donation.
In addition, the Jacket Backers will have a table on the floor of the arena near section 108. Stop by to ask any questions you may have, find out more information about the club, renew your membership or pick up your 2009 - 2010 membership card.
