Family Fun Day Benefits Jake’s Help From Heaven

By Staff Report | Local News
SARATOGA SPRINGS – On Sunday, April 27 the Fourth Annual Family Fun Day to Benefit Jake’s Help From Heaven will take place at the Saratoga Strike Zone, 32 Ballston Avenue in Saratoga Springs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Jake’s Help From Heaven Foundation, founded in 2011, is a non-profit foundation dedicated to supporting individuals with multiple medical challenges and disabilities. Countless challenges occur in caring for medically fragile, special needs individuals. The foundation’s goal is to assist individuals affected by debilitating illnesses. The popular event’s family bowling component had been sold out since February, but The Strike Zone’s End Zone Sports Pub will also be the site of a big party (for ages 21 and older) where there are still spots available. Tickets for that portion of the event are $20/person and include admission, 2 slices of pizza and your first drink (soda or beer). There are several ways to obtain tickets. They can be bought online at www.eventbrite.com/e/4th-annual-family-fun-day-registration-10468982007, or at the jakeshelpfromheaven.com site. Also, if you wish you can mail a check made out to Jake’s Help From Heaven Foundation and send it to Heather Straughter at 161 Circular Street, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866. Finally, you can register by phoning (518) 306-5665. However you pay, there is a deadline of April 25 to register for admission. “We want to make it easy for as many people as possible to come to the party!” Heather Straughter said. “Admission also allows you to get in on some awesome raffles.” Indeed, the foundation has gathered a prodigious amount of “star stuff,” well worth the price of a ticket if you are the winner. For instance, the “Day at the Races” package includes a VIP box (which seats five people) at the Saratoga Race Course on August 28. Bring your appetite as the package includes $50 for lunch at Hattie’s Track Shack and $250 for Dinner at Sperry’s Restaurant following the races. Raffle tickets for this package are $100, and only 25 of these will be sold. Other packages and items will be available. Tickets for these are $20 each, or six for $100. Examples include: • Two round-trip tickets anywhere in the continental US on Southwest Airlines • Two tickets to a Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park during the 2014 season • A 47” LG LED TV So Sunday, April 27 shapes up as an opportunity to help a worthy cause, while perhaps doing very well for you as well!
