Winnipeg Jets Gala
This year’s Winnipeg Jets Gala took place on Wednesday, December 1.
Highlighted by interactive illusions by featured performer Darcy Oake, the evening included exclusive player content, a fireside chat hosted by Winnipeg Jets Colour Analyst Jamie Thomas with Jets Assistant GM Craig Heisinger and NHL alumnus and former Moose player Kevin Bieksa, along with a silent auction and raffle, and more, all in support of the True North Youth Foundation.
Hosted by Project 11 ambassador and Virgin Radio’s Ace Burpee, the spotlight was on mental wellness and the work of Project 11 in Manitoba schools – the importance of which has only been emphasized as our youth have navigated the changes and challenges of the pandemic which has now infringed on three school years.
Whether through the academic support of the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Academy, the adventure of outdoor education at Camp Manitou or the wellness curriculum of Project 11, the True North Youth Foundation impacts over 75,000 youth annually.
Thank you for your support!
