The Winnipeg Jets Wives and Girlfriends will make two presentations this week for the money raised from the Lucky Pucks and Love Struck Pucks fundraisers. The two campaigns were the final two of three fundraisers put together by the group this year that have raised $57,434.13 for three local charities thanks to the generosity of Jets fans.
The first presentation saw Michela Myers, Sam Wheeler, Brittany Little, and Emelie Kulikov present The Movement Centre of Manitoba with a cheque for $18,263.33. That amount was the proceeds from the Lucky Pucks campaign in which St. Patrick's Day-themed pucks signed by Winnipeg Jets players were sold prior to the game on March 12/19 against the San Jose Sharks.
In addition, the Jets Wives, Girlfriends, and their families will unveil a plaque for a cabin at Camp Manitou built using the proceeds of the Love Struck Pucks campaign. The Love Struck Pucks campaign raised $25,981.52 by selling Valentine's Day-themed pucks signed by Winnipeg Jets players. The pucks were sold prior to the game on Feb. 14/19 against the Colorado Avalanche.
