The 42nd annual “An Evening with Champions” will take place Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. and Sept. 30 at 2 p.m. The event will take place at Harvard’s Bright Hockey Center and all event proceeds will benefit the Jimmy Fund, which supports adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. 

Hosted by 1992 Olympic silver medalist Paul Wylie and Harvard University student and 2010 Olympian Emily Hughes, the show will feature an all-star cast of skaters including three-time U.S. champion Jeremy Abbott, reigning U.S. bronze medalist Agnes Zawadzki, 2011 U.S. champion Ryan Bradley and two-time Junior Grand Prix Final bronze medalist and incoming Harvard freshman Christina Gao.

A silent auction to benefit the Jimmy Fund will begin 30 minutes before each show, with a prize drawing after intermission. Since its premier in 1970, “An Evening with Champions” has been run entirely by Harvard University students and has raised more than $2.5 million for the Jimmy Fund.
