Oregonians for Nebraska Help Team Jack

Oregonians for Nebraska Help Team Jack

Wednesday, January 30, 2019

The Oregonians for Nebraska looks forward to holding it’s 3rd Annual Team Jack Day fundraiser during the 2019 Husker football season. 

Besides hosting watch parties, one of the chapter’s primary missions is to support the University of Nebraska as well as local community causes within the boundaries of Oregon and Southwest Washington.  

Our board couldn’t think of a more worthy cause that our chapter members could enthusiastically get behind than the Nebraska based Team Jack Foundation.

We know that the money raised will go towards helping fund the much needed research that offers hope and improved treatment options for those effected by this horrible disease.

We also do this as a way of honoring Jack Hoffman and his family who are great representatives of the state of Nebraska.

As one chapter member said “It feels really good to be able to help out in some way”.

This year’s Team Jack event was held in conjunction with the Nebraska vs. Northwestern watch party on Saturday, October 13th.  

Despite the lower than normal attendance, we were still able to raise $1,000.00.

With the generous support of watch party site, Paddy’s Bar & Grill and the Team Jack Foundation, we were able to conduct a silent auction that offered a large array of mostly Husker items.  The chapter also contributed the proceeds from the game day raffle that is normally held during the season.
