Anthony Cipoletta (at right), a young patient at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, has probably never seen ice-skating. He also does not know that the Jimmy Fund, the primary source of private contributions to the Institute, celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Neither does he know that the Evening with Champions is among the largest contributors to the Fund. The annual skating exhibition has raised over three quarters of a million dollars over the last 18 years for the research and treatment of childhood cancer.
Last weekend, Evening with Champions featured United States and Candian world-class skaters in one of their last shows before the 1988 Winter Olympic Games in Calgary, Canada. The participants included (counterclockwise from left) Katy Keely and Joe Mero, the 1987 U.S. Pairs Bronze Medalists, Jeri Camp-bell, the 1987 U.S. Junior Women's Champion, Suzanne Semanick and Scott Gregory, the 1987 U.S. Dance Champions.
