After Three Seasons, DJ’s Dugout Sports Bar & Partners Raise $37,500 for Team Jack!

Wednesday, January 9, 2019

DJ’s Dugout Sports Bar in Omaha continued their help in the fight against pediatric brain cancer with their third annual Football Saturdays fundraiser.  This past Fall, DJ's Dugout and their partners, Quality Brands, Husker Hounds, Reinhart Food Service and new Amsterdam Vodka, raised $15,000 for the Team Jack Foundation. Each Husker football game day during the 2018 season, DJ’s Dugout offered a special menu with a portion of the sales going to the Team Jack Foundation to fund impactful pediatric brain cancer research. Husker fans packed DJ’s Dugout in support of the Big Red and the Team Jack Foundation.

With the help of their partners, DJ's Dugout’s fundraising efforts for Team Jack have now raised over $37,500 for pediatric brain cancer research! In following the Huskers on the field and in supporting a great cause, Husker fans really are the best in the country!

This group effort by DJ's Dugout and their partners has been fantastic for fans, but very impactful for children with brain cancer!

"DJ’s Dugout continues to support Team Jack Foundation because we believe in the cause and the organization.  We have enjoyed working with Kylie and her Team,” said Natalie Hankins of DJ's Dugout.

Thank you, DJ’s Dugout, Quality Brands, Husker Hounds, Reinhard Food Service and New Amsterdam Vodka for your continued support!
