Voak Sportswear raises $8750 for over 70 Winnipeg businesses selling Winnipeg Jets Blake Wheeler prints

Jets captain lends his face to raise money for local businesses.

Three weeks ago we wrote about how Chris Watchorn, who is the Creative Director at VOAK Sportswear, and Jets captain Blake Wheeler decided to team up to help raise funds for some local businesses that they support.

They produced Blake Wheeler prints which Voak sold on their website:

According to Voak’s Instagram account as a result of the campaign which kicked off in May they were able to  purchase $8,750.00 worth of gift cards from over 70 businesses in Winnipeg and included these gift cards with the prints that were ordered.

Due to the success of the first run Wheeler signed more prints which are available for purchase here.

Morning skate for the Jets gets underway in 30 minutes.
