The Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation was able to raise over $8,000 through both the Festival of Trees Auction and Foundation Tree Raffle (presented by Dickâ€™s Sporting Goods).
Fans had the opportunity to bid on small trees personally decorated by members of the Blue Jackets over a spread of games (Dec. 8 vs. NY Islanders, Dec. 11 vs. New Jersey and Dec. 13 vs. Philadelphia).
In addition, the Blue Jackets Foundation sold raffle tickets for the annual Blue Jackets Foundation Tree presented by Dickâ€™s Sporting Goods. The tree was decorated with Dickâ€™s Sporting Goods merchandise and unique CBJ items,Â making theÂ tree a perfect addition to any household!
Congratulations to Rena Beitera, the lucky winner of the 2005-2006 Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation Tree presented by Dick's Sporting Goods. The tree was adorned in Dickâ€™s Sporting Goods, collectible Blue Jackets merchandise, and once in a lifetime experiences. This year's tree also featured a Dick's Sporting Goods bike, golf bag, sports equipment, and more!
Remember fans, decorate your holiday tree with an autographed Blue Jackets ornament. These ornaments will be on sale while supplies last throughout December at the Foundation tables behind section 110.
