The Winnipeg Jets are excited to start a new holiday tradition through an online auction titled ‘My Favourite Things’, which features a collection of personal items assembled for each member of the team. This is an initiative of the Winnipeg Jets wives and significant others who have spent considerable effort selecting and filling each basket with the favourite things of their Winnipeg Jet. The ‘My Favourite Things’ auction is a fundraising effort with all proceeds benefitting the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation and its charitable causes.
The online auction is hosted on www.auction.nhl.com. Jets fans can link directly to the players auction items by going to winnipegjets.com and clicking the ‘My Favourite Things’ banner. The online auctions each end at 11 p.m. CT on Sunday, Dec. 21.
Each gift basket is decorated and filled with that player’s favorite things including their hobbies, interests or favourite places to eat locally. While each gift basket differs in content and decoration, all baskets have a minimum monetary value of $300 and contain an autographed Winnipeg Jets jersey and copy of the “Our Jets at Home” Cookbook. Select Cookbooks will be autographed by a player in their section of the book.
