We are changing lives through our scholarships & the participation in community fundraisers.
the first scholarship recipient
We are proud to announce the first recipient of a scholarship from the Jack Gives Back Foundation. Jamie W. was a classmate and dear friend of Jack. Jamie has Down’s Syndrome and is so excited to experience his first week of dolphin therapy with his mom, his dad, brother, and sister at Island Dolphin Care in Key Largo, FL. See all the fun Jamie had at IDC here!
MATTHEW'S LENDING LIBRARY, NIGHT AT THE RACE
On February 3rd, Jack Gives Back supported Matthew's Lending Library by attending their annual Night at the Races in Cleveland, OH. Over 200 people participated in horse races, raffles, and a horse auction for Race #10 which was sponsored by JGB. The highlight of the night was the final race which was won by Jack's friend, Jamie and his family!
ISLAND DOLPHIN CARE, ANNUAL AUCTION
To honor Jack's memory, 24 family and friends attended Island Dolphin Care's annual I Do Care auction held at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo last November. Jack Gives Back was proud to be the auction's sponsor and displayed our banner at the entrance! Through silent and live auction items, they raised over $150,000 to support the programs at IDC. To celebrate Jack's life, we ended the weekend by releasing butterflies at Island Dolphin Care surrounded by Squirt and his other dolphin friends.
