Hopefully you had a chance to grab a box or two. I know I had more than my share and have a few extra pounds to prove for it. The good thing about eating all of those Ovi O’s is that a portion of the proceeds are going to the Childhood Cancer Foundation.
Captain Ovechkin signed the big check today. A total of $44,008 (of course 008) was raised for the foundation.
You did it! What a way to finish out #CCAM! Your purchases of #OviOs cereal @GiantFood raised $44,008 for @CCFToday. Thank you to @Capitals, @GiantFood and @Ovi8 himself for helping CCF fund local #childhoodcancer research and programs for kids fighting cancer. #CancerResearch pic.twitter.com/Moe9aCxHdq

Ovi O’s originally made it to the shelves of Giant Food stores back on September 17, 2019, (Ovechkin’s birthday) and where available for a better part of a year.

To announce the launch of the cereal, Ovechkin made the rounds at a local school, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and a local Giant Food store.

Hopefully you had a chance to grab a box. If not, you can still buy a box on eBay for anywhere from $15-20. If you need an empty box, hit me up, I’ve got a case of them.
