PAPA JOHN’S PRESENTS CHECK TO JANIS FOLIGNO FOUNDATION

At the last home game of the regular season, Papa John’s of Central Ohio presented a check to the Janis Foligno Foundation in the amount of $15,250. However this year the presentation had a little extra, with Captain Nick Foligno accepting the check on behalf of the foundation.

This donation is a combination of Nick’s goals this year and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Defender pizza during the hockey season. All donations will be given to the Janis Foligno Foundation, an organization that supports local charities and research projects committed to finding a cure for cancer, and which provide care and treatment to those battling the disease.

And as the Jackets head into the postseason Papa John’s is doubling down to fight cancer! For each goal Nick scores during the postseason, we will donate $1,000 to the Janis Foligno Foundation!
