Paint Night at Acapulcos For Jake’s Sake!!

Come out to Acapulco’s on November 7 from 7-9pm for a Paint Night Fundraiser!

Artists from The Artful Life Studio in Beverly, MA will be guiding us to paint a “Light it Up Blue” image! All proceeds will be donated to For Jake’s Sake! Drinks and food will be available for purchase.

Cost: $45.00 per ticket

Purchase tickets:

Artists are from The Artful Life counseling center & studio!

About the organizers: Liz and Emily are local moms who both have young boys with autism. Our families have been extremely lucky to have been supported by For Jake’s Sake, which has allowed our sons and families access to therapies that we would not have been able to afford otherwise. We feel very strongly about being able to ‘pay it forward’ and help For Jake’s Sake provide similar support to other families.

New York City Marathon Runners!!!!

For Jake’s Sake is proud to have 6 fundraisers running the NY City Marathon on November 1 this year!!!

One of our fundraisers is holding a unique raffle.   From runner Kevin Staffin –

Ever wonder what it’d be like to have a personal assistant? Or maybe you have some odd jobs around the house you’ve been putting off and would be happy to pay someone else to do them? Maybe you need some alone time from your kids but always find getting a sitter to be a pain in the butt?

Well…I have your answer…from now until September 13, 2015, for every $10 you donate to my efforts for For Jake’s Sake, you will get one entry into a drawing. The winner of this drawing will get my services for 4 hours. What you have me do during that time is up to you.

On 9/13/15 following my first 70.3 Triathlon I will have the founder or namesake of this great organization pull the name for the drawing.

Please follow the link below and thank you in advance for your donation.
