WINNIPEG (CP) Only the formal paper signing remains to complete the sale of Winnipeg Je.ts of the World Hockey Association to a group of Winnipeg businessmen. The sale moved closer to reality Friday when a three- week public fund-raising campaign surpassed its goal. At last report the total was approaching "They've got the Jets president and part-owner Ben Hatskin said after the success of the drive was guaranteed by an anonymous donation. "You can say they'll take over, probably in a couple of weeks." Hatskin and the Simkin family agreed to sell the franchise to the group for million, with a down payment, to ensure the club remained in Winnipeg. The purchase originally appeared set more than a month ago until the provincial government decided it would not provide the businessmen with a interest-free loan. That decision also nullified the City of Winnipeg's original approval of a similar loan, made on the condition that the province also participate. Last week, however, the city said it would make the loan available if the fund-raising campaign was successful in reaching "We were never really sure of Ivan Berkowitz, a spokesman for the businessmen said. "As late as Wednesday we weren't sure. While it was large donations by corporations in the final two days put the fund over the top, it was the tremendous response from the private citizens which kept the .campaign committee hopeful and confident. "We began in the ivo-y towers of the businesses and moved down from there. We went to the unions where we got tremendous support and that was our first indication that we should broaden our horizons past the businesses. The group began the campaign June 10, raising the money through the sale of membership certificates for citizens, acquisition of founders loans from small businesses and large donations from larger companies. They faced a July 1 deadline set by the current owners after the provincial government rejected the loan request. Hatskin said at that time the group was being given additional time because he and the Simkins wanted to do everything possible to keep the team in Winnipeg. Berkowitz said the group will meet next week to determine what changes will be made in the management of the club. Hatskin, while he will not remain as president of the club, will remain a league trustee. "The major job is ahead of Berkowitz said, "The main thing right now is to sell tickets. The response to season tickets has been very exciting so far." Berkowitz said there would be "no revolution" when management changes are discussed because the future owners are satisfied with the way the team is run.
