The Jacket Backers with Support from the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation Present the Community Power Play
The Jacket Backers are proud to announce the Community Power Play!
For each power play goal scored by the Columbus Blue Jackets this season, the Jacket Backers will donate $10 to the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation.
Over the summer we lost our dear friend and dedicated volunteer, David Yatsco. Shortly after learning of David's passing, thinking about all of the good memories with him, we quickly started wondering what we could do to honor David's life and his great spirit.
Occasionally, when the team hit a rough spot, David would put out a jar on our membership table at home games that asked for "DONATIONS FOR MORE POWER PLAY GOALS". It was his way of trying to give the team a boost.
Going through some of our stuff this fall, we came across David's jar. It inspired us to come up with the idea of making a donation with every CBJ Power Play Goal. With the support of the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation the idea of the Community Power Play was born.
With each Power Play goal scored by the Blue Jackets, the Jacket Backers will donate $10 to the Blue Jackets Foundation. And you can help! At home games, at all of our events, or online, you can help. You can help by making a matching donation with us, or any donation you choose, to the Blue Jackets Foundation via the Community Power Play.
We will begin accepting donations at the home opener at our table behind section 116. When we score a power play goal, stop by our table to make a donation or just to celebrate power play goals with us! If you are not at the game, we will keep a donation button on our website for your convenience. All Community Power Play proceeds go to the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation.

This year, we're donating because of Dave. And John. And Andy. And Jane. And Rick. And Ryan. And many more.
Celebrate Life, Celebrate Hockey, Celebrate the Community Power Play and help the Jacket Backers give a little back to our community!
