BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
EVENT DATE: May 11, 2013
The Jawann Brown Fundraiser is back and better than ever! We are celebrating the life of Jawann at the 4th Annual Jawann Brown Fundraiser, on May 11, 2013. (Sponsored Partially by Blue Rock Cafe and Russ Salzberg of Fox5 and My9 News)
As we all know, Jawann was a beloved son, friend, and teammate that was taken from us in May of 2009 after a tough battle with leukemuia. Though he lost his life at such a young age he managed to make a lasting impression on everyone he came in contact with, whether it was through family, sports or school. It was easy for all of us to love him so dearly with his carefree attitude, boisterous personality and quick wit.
The fourth installment of the Jawann brown Fundraiser will, again, start with our famous alumni baseball game at Matawan Regional High School. If you haven’t been to one yet, just ask anyone who has and you’ll find out quickly what a great time it is.
The second half will be a wonderful lunch fundraiser held at the newly renovated BLUE ROCK CAFE. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Jawann Brown Scholarship Fund and The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
If you can't make it out to the fundraiser this year, you can still do your part and donate on this page to fight Leukemia and put an end to a terrible disease.
Every year, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society makes great strides towards a cure for the disease that abruptly ended Jawann’s life and the scholarship in his name helps to provide a student athlete with a college education.
We ask for a donation of $25, or more, to help do our part in eliminating this terrible disease. However, if you can't make it to the fundraiser, any amount will help.
Each participant will have access to a fantastic buffet, provided by BLUE ROCK CAFE, and drink specials. In addition, we will be raffling off a plethora of prizes, including tickets to various baseball games, holding a 50/50 raffle, and selling JB-fundraiser T-Shirts.
The alumni baseball Game will be played at the Matawan Regional High School varsity field, at 10AM, on May 11, 2013. It will last roughly two hours. All spectators should arrive by 9:30AM, and all players should be at the field by 9AM. In the case of inclement weather, all updates for the game will be posted on this event page. Refreshments will be sold at the field to support the Matawan Regional Varsity Baseball Team.
The fundraiser lunch will be held at Blue Rock Cafe, in Keyport, after the game, from 1PM to 4PM. Please be on-time! Buffet details will be posted shortly.
