This year, the Mid-America Council is partnering with Team Jack Foundation. For every Nebraska Husker tin that is sold in the 2013 fall sale, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Team Jack Foundation. The Team Jack Foundation is fighting pediatric brain cancer.
Jack Hoffman, a 7-year-old boy, was diagnosed with pediatric brain cancer in 2011. He is now famous for a 69-yard touchdown that he ran at the 2013 Husker Spring Game. He won an ESPY for the Best Sports Moment in July. Purchasing a Nebraska Tin this year supports both the local Boy Scouts and Team Jack. Each tin contains 3-gallons of popcorn and costs $50. Learn more about Team Jack at www.teamjackfoundation.org.
Sports tins featuring Creighton University will be added to the product lineup this year, and fresh designs for Nebraska, Iowa State, and University of Iowa will also be sold. Information about all of this year’s products can be found online at http://mac-bsa.org/popcorn_information.aspx.
