Another heartwarming moment will occur when Stick It to Cancer welcomes Brittany and Ryan Sanders to drop the ceremonial puck in honor of their late mother, Jodi Hegle Sanders. Sanders was a 1981 graduate of North High School. In 2001, she was diagnosed with Hyalinizing Clear Cell Carcinoma, a very rare salivary gland cancer. She lost her battle in September 2019. Jodi was an avid sports fan and loved watching her family play hockey.
To accommodate for COVID-19 safety guidelines, this year’s silent auction will be an online auction available at this link. The auction is open now through February 10th at 11:59 p.m.
Funds raised will be donated to Lend-A-Hand Up to support families in Cass and Clay Counties battling significant health issues.
Last year's Stick It to Cancer event raised $63,024.01. When combined with matched funds, this has enabled the Lend-A-Hand Up program to distribute $429,701.97 of financial assistance since 2010.
