It was an historic night of skating at this year’s “Evening with Champions,” which took place in mid-October and was co-hosted by Paul Wylie and Emily Hughes.

The 2011 event, which was a complete sellout, raised more than $100,000 for the Jimmy Fund, which supports adult and pediatric cancer care and research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
