The Jake Cavanaugh Foundation received its tax exempt status – 501 (c) (3) effective on July 19, 2011 which would have been Jake’s 23rd birthday.
The Turkey Bowl was awesome. It was a great day for the participants and those that just came out to see old friends. We were able to help Mark McFerren’s family with medical expenses. They are a wonderful family. Mark, his sister Kate, and his dad Dave were able to come to the event.
We want to share this painting that Eric Silkwood did for our family. We love it.
Another very good friend of Jake’s, Jillian Otis, had the idea to bowl in a league and the proceeds will go to Jake’s Foundation. It has been a lot of fun – it’s comforting to get together with those who loved Jake.
