WEEKEND PICK: Watch Olympic & World-Class Skates and Help the Jimmy Fund

Tonight and tommorrow Olympic and world skaters, including Harvard University student Emily Hughes, will do triple axels and toe loops to benefit the Jimmy Fund at An Evening with Champions.
In its 38th year, this premier figure skating exhibition is tonight at 8 and tomorow (Saturday, Oct. 13) night at 7 at Harvard University's Bright Hockey Center.
A silent auction will take place half an hour before each show. Paul Wylie, a 1992 Olympic silver medalist and class of 1990 Harvard graduate, will host the performance.
An Evening with Champions has been run entirely by Harvard University students, raising more than $2.3 million for the Jimmy Fund, which supports research and care for adult and pediatric cancers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Tickets cost $32 for adults, $12 for children and senior citizens. Group rates are also available for groups of 10 or more. Harvard's Bright Hockey Center is located on 79 North Harvard Street in Allston.
