Team Jack Gets $10K from James Denton
7-year-old cancer patient Jack Hoffman is about as famous as anyone who has ever slipped on a Nebraska Cornhusker football jersey. His touchdown run during the Husker spring game was an internet sensation, and he’s even had a chance to rub shoulders with some other pretty famous people – first President Obama, now actor James Denton.
The ‘Desperate Housewives’ star is one of three people to each pay $10,000 for an Upper Deck trading card commemorating Jack’s run for glory in Lincoln. All of the money raised goes to the Team Jack Foundation.
A South Dakota dentist was another $10,000 donor. Dr. Darold Opp, from Aberdeen, bought a Team Jack card, along with a man from Texas.
