Kevin Shattenkirk Kancer Jam Fundraiser Meet and Greet
A rare opportunity to meet a hometown Ranger and raise some money for children battling cancer
New York Rangers defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk is partnering with legendary Irish sports bar and gastropub Mustang Harry’s to raise money for children with cancer through the Jam Kancer in the Kan Foundation.
Since its inception in 2014, the Jam Kancer in the Kan Foundation has raised over $975,000 and is expected to eclipse $1 million this year. Shattenkirk, a New York native, was inspired to work with the charity after seeing a video of the inaugural Anders Lee’s Kancer Jam which took place on March 18, 2017. The first Shatty Jam took place on Feb. 24th, 2018, and raised nearly $100,000. Proceeds from the event were distributed to the Garden of Dreams Foundation and The Children’s Hospital of Montefiore (CHAM), which is close to Shattenkirk’s hometown of New Rochelle.
On Janunary 16, Shattenkirk and Mustang Harry’s will welcome 100 VIP guests from 6-8 p.m. to kickoff the second annual Shatty Jam. Tickets to next week’s event are $100 each and tax-deductible. Attendees will receive a signed Shatty Jam hockey puck, a personal photo opportunity with Shattenkirk, complimentary beer and hors d’oeuvres, a $25 gift card for Mustang Harry’s, and will have access to a silent auction featuring signed Rangers memorabilia.
Mustang Harry’s is a favorite haunt of Rangers fans, and is just a short walk away from The Garden. It’s located at 352 7th Ave. (between 29th & 30th St.).
It’s a unique opportunity to have an unforgettable night of fun while raising some money for the families of children who are battling cancer. You can grab your tickets to this special event here.

“Visiting the children being treated at CHAM does nothing but inspire me to work harder to help them,” Shattenkirk shared on the foundation’s site. “These kids all have the greatest attitudes, incredible spirits, and the unique ability to make the best of a seemingly bad situation.”
