A Day Away is Jerry’s Gift.
Write in and tell us about your situation, or an individual or family that could benefit from going to an event. Often financial hardships associated with a life-threatening illness can make these experiences impossible.
We have access to sporting event tickets, theatre/musical and other events that are a welcome distraction to the daily stress of dealing with cancer. We also have an annual fishing event and so much more.
We do our best to accommodate other wishes, when the diagnosis is life limiting.
Please ensure you have discussed sharing an individuals’ information before contacting us. If you are unsure on how to proceed simply call us or email us and we can discuss how the program works. Proof of illness and financial information may be required

In honour of Jerry Maslowsky the Never Alone Foundation will host two suites at the Winnipeg Goldeyes each season and one at a Manitoba Moose game.
On September 4, 2016, Jerry passed away suddenly and unexpectedly from an aggressive form of esophageal cancer.
Jerry’s passion for helping others and giving back to the community will continue on through Jerry’s Gift. Jerry’s Gift will allow individuals, families and caregivers affected by cancer the opportunity to experience a break from everyday life by attending a memorable event. When cancer becomes your life, sometimes it’s about finding the small joys that can truly make a difference.
Anyone involved in the sports industry in Manitoba, knew the name Jerry Maslowsky. Jerry spent the majority of his career involved in high-level marketing and communications positions in Manitoba’s sports community.
Near the start of his career, Jerry worked closely on developing sales and marketing programs in conjunction with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Manitoba Moose, Winnipeg Goldeyes and the Winnipeg Jets where he was responsible for developing and implementing the “Save the Jets” Campaign in 1996. Jerry went on to a successful tenure as Vice President of Marketing for the 1999 Pan American Games; one of the most successful games to date thanks in part to his efforts.
Jerry spent the majority of his career as the Vice-President of Sales and Marketing with the Winnipeg Football Club, where he was introduced to Lyle Bauer and was involved in the development of the Never Alone Foundation. Jerry was a life-long Blue Bomber fan and had the opportunity to work his dream job for 15 seasons. He was committed to his team and regularly went above and beyond to help players, office staff, coaches and fans. Jerry was truly one-of-kind, inspiring hope, enriching lives and giving back to the community.
