In February, the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation held its annual event to support the fight against pediatric cancer. Usually, Nationwide Arena is the place to catch big shows — Bruce Springsteen, Cher, and Katy Perry will be coming in the next few months — but on this night, the arena swarmed with men in black tie and women in evening gowns taking part in a dinner and a live auction to raise money for their cause.

Leading up to the finalé for the evening — a runway show, featuring Blue Jackets hockey players and pediatric cancer patients and survivors — Denison’s all-female a cappella group, Ladies’ Night Out, took to the stage to provide a little music. In the end, the foundation brought in $500,000 for the kids.
