An Evening with Champions

Purpose Statement

An Evening with Champions is a public charity non-profit committee dedicated to fighting cancer by raising money for The Jimmy Fund, the fundraising arm of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Founded at Harvard University in 1970, An Evening with Champions presents an annual world-class figure skating exhibition at the Bright Hockey Center in Allston, Massachusetts. The exhibition features national and Olympic figure skaters, and has seen the talents of champions such as Yuna Kim, Michelle Kwan, Johnny Weir, and more. An Evening with Champions is entirely run by Harvard students, and is motivated to support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund as they seek new methods of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer. Though the organization mainly focuses on organizing our annual fall exhibition, members of An Evening with Champions also volunteer at The Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk, and work with other Harvard organizations eager to support the fight against cancer.
