Good day everyone,
It is with a heavy heart that I am sharing we will be postponing the 2020 Play For Jake Golf Outing until June 26, 2021. The word cancel can be so negative at times and we’re doing some really positive work at the Play For Jake Foundation, so we’re doing all that we can to keep this situation in a positive lens.
Thank you to everyone who responded to my previous email concerning this matter; It was great to see the feedback. I know many will be disappointed by this decision, but please rest assured that it was not made lightly.
Jake’s Golf Outing has always been about community and comradery – there is a huge social aspect to our event. Given the potential limitations, I recognize that the event just wouldn’t be the same. And I do not want Jake’s Foundation to possibly be the cause of the one thing we are all seeking to avoid. Health has always been the priority of the Play For Jake Foundation.
Refunds will be sent out this month for those who have already registered. If anyone is interested in still making a donation to help provide free screenings for students, our mailing address is 612 ½ Monroe, LaPorte, Indiana 46350.
Jake’s golf outing will be bigger and better than ever next year, and we’re excited to share some new updates with you soon.
Here is some exciting news to share as we move forward; I had a zoom meeting with one of our state representatives and others to start the process of getting a law passed. Once we get the verbiage about Jake’s Law, I will be sure to send an update. We will need a lot of support to get the law passed.
We’re also working on getting a newsletter and a new foundation webpage made to keep everyone updated. We have so many irons in the fire, which means so many good things coming soon.
Thank you everyone, and I hope you stay healthy and return next year on June 26 th , 2021.
