The Winnipeg Jets are excited to start a new tradition of creating holiday baskets and auctioning them to support the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation. This is an initiative of the Winnipeg Jets wives and significant others who have spent considerable effort selecting and filling each basket with the favourite things of their Winnipeg Jet!
Each gift basket is decorated and filled with that player’s favorite things including their hobbies, interests or favourite places to eat locally. While each gift basket differs in content and decoration, all baskets have a minimum monetary value of $300 and contain a Winnipeg Jets jersey and copy of the “Our Jets at Home” Cookbook. Select Cookbooks will be autographed by a player in their section of the book.
About Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation:
The Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation (WJTNF) is the charitable arm of the Winnipeg Jets, and ‘charity of choice’ for the MTS Centre and MTS IcePlex. The Foundation allows players, their partners, coaches, board members, and True North staff to contribute to the community of Manitoba in a concerted and centralized manner. The WJTNF raises funds and provides grants to youth charities in Manitoba. The Foundation also runs the True North Hockey Academy, which provides at-risk youth an opportunity to play hockey. The program aims to increase the confidence of the youth, help them feel connected to their community, and motivate them to stay in school.
