KEARNEY — The Tri-City Storm will have a special guest at its game Saturday night against Sioux Falls.

Jack Hoffman and his father Andy will make the trip to Kearney from Atkinson to watch Tri-City in action at 7:05 p.m.

The Hoffman family will be on the ice for a pre-game ceremony in which Jack will drop the game’s ceremonial first puck.

In addition, the Storm will wear specialty jerseys with the Team Jack Foundation logo. The uniforms will be sold as part of a silent auction during the game, with all proceeds donated to benefit Team Jack.

Another way Tri-City will raise money for the foundation is in the Storm Store. A Team Jack T-shirt is available for purchase, and all proceeds from shirt sales will go directly to the foundation.

Team Jack is committed to raising money for the sole purpose of funding relevant pediatric brain cancer research and works to create national awareness for the disease.
