Welcome and Thank You for Visiting Us
A terrific time for a great cause!
Your support and generosity is greatly appreciated.
A message to all of Gerard’s “3 on 3” family and friends……..
Wow! How tough this past year has been in so many ways. Hopefully the end of this Covid Pandemic is near and we can all soon get back to most forms of “normal”.
Unfortunately, like the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the Boston Marathon, the current Covid 19 protocols will make it impossible for us to safely host The Jamboree at The Hallenborg Rink this year.
As you may recall, it was just a year ago when the rink, and almost everything else, abruptly closed due to the statewide shutdown. Since we already had a large number of Rink Sponsors and Raffle items pledged, we were able to still support Gerard’s Scholarship with a virtual raffle. We’re hoping to do the same this year!
If you are interested and are able to help, we are in need of both raffle items and sponsors for this year’s virtual event. If you have an item to donate or wish to make a donation, please contact one of our committee members directly or through our website www.gerardjacobshockeyjamboree.com If easier, items can be mailed to S. Wilde, 21 Pratt street, Billerica, MA 01821. Any proceeds will go directly to the Gerard Jacobs Scholarship Fund
Details are now available on the raffle and TShirts can be purchased on this site.
Please accept our most heartfelt appreciation to you all who have been part of this through the years. Next year we will get back to our usual format of hockey, fans and family activities.

The Gerard J. Jacobs Hockey Jamboree was established as a day for friends and family to come together and remember Gerard. The "backyard style" Jamboree is a simple format that promotes laughter and friendship, two of the many things that were important to Gerard.
Proceeds from the Jamboree have been used to support the Gerard J. Jacobs Memorial Scholarship and Charitable Trust Fund that were established in memory of Gerard. Scholarships are awarded to Billerica and Shawsheen Tech students that are attending college or pursuing a trade. We have also been able to purchase and donate a new, state of the art scoreboard/time clock for the Hallenborg Rink at Billerica High, benefiting players from all over the region.
We hope you can join us for a day of hockey, raffles, food and fun.
With Love, The Jacobs Family and Friends of Gerard
Please let us know if you are interested in making a raffle prize donation. We are able to accept until April 18th.

Other than players, we are consistently asked what else is needed.
