Description

I am excited to announce the Inaugural Carolyn Froats Memorial Ball and weekend! This will be a weekend filled with Carolyn's favorite fun events. We will kick off the weekend with a fantastic evening featuring an exciting live auction, raffle and live music by Alex Guthrie and his band - ensuring a fabulous night for our guests! In honor of Carolyn, 100 percent of the net proceeds of the event will be donated to the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation. The ticket price will cover all food and drink.

Tennis and golf were two of Carolyn's favorite activities. We intend to organize a low key tennis round robin with complimentary pizza and beer on Sunday evening, and golf for those who would like to play on Monday morning (golf will be an additional expense-more info to come). If interested in golf and/or tennis, please contact Peter.

FAQs

What is the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation?

When a parent is diagnosed with late-stage cancer, a family’s world is immediately turned upside down as children face the imminent loss of their young Mom or Dad. Imagine taking a fabulous family trip during your chemo and radiation treatments. Enter the Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation.

Experiences®...a prescribed timeout as part of treatment protocol together as a family away from their late stage cancer to create positive, cherished, (indispensable) memories…while they can. 

Oncologists prescribe JAJF as part of the treatment protocol for the patient, the spouse and their children…the family together which is extraordinary. Oncologists have validated the medicinal impact JAJF is having in the immediate term and now longer term for these families especially the children who are losing their heroes and security blankets at such a vulnerable time. Oncologists validate the power of laughter and smiles--of positive, fun family time together (and the power of beaches, sunsets, sports, music and roller coasters): The POWER OF WOW!™

As the only organization of its kind serving this overlooked population, there is a need to keep fighting the fight; there is also a need to keep fighting for cherished family time for these young parents who just won’t be saved by the next wonder drug, clinical trial or hope for a cure. JAJF has a mandate to sustain.

JAJF is supported by and dependent on individual financial donors, family foundations, grants and corporations who make these prescribed timeouts...these WOW! Experiences® possible.
