2018 Jersey Fund

Jersey Fund

The Jersey Fund is a collaborative effort to help bring extra comfort to oncology patients during their care. Funds are raised through student-organized activities and jersey silent auctions during the Calumet Copper Kings varsity boys hockey and the varsity girls basketball game on Athletes gear up in pink for both games. All proceeds will be used to create special comfort kits filled with useful items patients may need before, during and after their treatment. In previous years, proceeds helped to purchase iPads and warming blankets for patients to use while receiving treatment at Aspirus Keweenaw.
