Annual BBQ Celebration

Jack’s Helping Hand hosts an Annual Celebration each summer to celebrate our wonderful children and their families as well as raise awareness and funds to support our mission. The event is emceed by John Summer and Owen Beck, our first Assistance recipient. The celebration is always a memorable evening for everyone involved.

The celebration includes both a silent and live auction, delicious wine and beer donated by local vineyards and breweries, and wonderful food, all while listening to music provided by JD Project. Thanks to the overwhelming and generous spirit of our community, the event raised more than $750,000 this year. These funds will be used for the ongoing needs of our assistance program as well as our numerous other programs that continue to help the medically fragile children in our community.

“Jack’s Helping Hand reached out to us shortly after we arrived at Stanford, they had already arranged hotel accommodations for my parents, sent gift cards for meals and gas, and were there for us if we needed any information from other families who had gone through similar circumstances. We had one less thing to worry about: Jack’s Helping Hand worked seamlessly behind the scenes to make life just a little bit easier for us. And when dealing with a tragedy like that, a little bit goes a long way. My parents were able to put their lives on hold for me from the moment they got that phone call, and that was largely because of Jack’s Helping Hand.”
