We participate in Bridge Builders Week of Giving. When you donate through BBCF’s Week of Giving, you not only qualify your favorite organization for a larger share of the Week of Giving stretch pool, but also for additional event prize money. We also partner with the Venango County Humane Society for a Bingo fundraiser.
Jamie’s Kids hosts a Golf Outing on the third Saturday of June (Father’s Day Weekend) at Mr. Hope Golf Course in Guys Mills, PA. The event is a four-person scramble (men, women and mixed teams) and includes hole prizes, hole games, optional mulligans and skins, a basket raffle, and a 50/50 raffle. With food and beverages, including breakfast, hotdogs at the turn, and a homemade picnic dinner, it’s a great time for golfers and volunteers alike!
We host an annual benefit dinner on the last Saturday in October at the Rocky Grove Fire Hall in Franklin, PA. This event includes a spaghetti dinner, basket raffle (we’ve been told it’s the best one around!), a 50/50 raffle, pumpkin decorating, a coloring contest for area school children, and a performance by local youth choir, HOLeY Jeans.
Jamie’s Kids participates in Franklin’s Electric Lights Parade each November as part of the Light-Up Night festivities. We decorate a school bus for the holidays, fill it with children, and surround it with volunteers who spread holiday cheer to the crowds gathered to enjoy the parade. Jamie Jacoby’s birthday was November 17th, and participating in the Electric Lights Parade helps us honor and remember her during this special time of year.
