Back to School Golf Event: Co-Chairs Take Aim at Raising a 'Hole' Bunch of Support


The I Back Jack Foundation is proud to introduce Nicole Mullett and Bridget Sheahan as Co-Chairs of this year's Back to School Golf Event.  Supporters of the Foundation and attendees of past golf events, Mullett and Sheahan are eager to encourage others to back Jack and ensure children battling cancer will benefit from new treatment options.    


Mullett explains, "I back Jack because my son has been a friend and classmate of Jack's for the past few years and I know what a great and inspiring kid he is." Sheahan continues, "Jack is a strong young man.  He has been battling cancer far too long like so many other kids and we need to be a part of funding new treatments and finding renewed hope." Both women have had family members diagnosed with cancer, and recognize the daily battle all patients and families endure.


The Co-Chairs agree that The Back to School Golf Event is special because it brings together a thoughtful group of people at a beautiful venue to make a difference for children not just in our community, but across the nation.  


We are incredibly honored to have such great women aiming to increase awareness, participation and support for the I Back Jack Foundation. Be a part of the bunch and turn in your registration today!  

The Brains Behind the Bananas:
Bananagrams Backs Jack


Abe Nathanson was a man with an infectious spirit and an unbeatable imagination. Anyone lucky enough to cross his path was won over by his warmth and enthusiasm for fun. When Nathanson, creator and founder of Bananagrams, Inc., spoke to the family of Jack Bartosz in February 2010 and heard Jack's story, he immediately spotted something worth supporting. 


While hAbe Nathanson, founder of B'gramsumor, humility and charm were the most obvious of attributes shared between Nathanson and Jack, very few knew they shared something far more serious -- a battle with cancer.  Never one to let cancer beat his optimistic outlook on life, Nathanson saw similar wit and determination in Jack's family. That's why he did not hesitate in committing his wholehearted support to the I Back Jack Foundation. 


The world sadly lost Abe Nathanson to cancer in 2010 but his passion for life lives on in his family, colleagues, and Bananagrams fans. The I Back Jack family is very proud to have the Bananagrams family as partners in hope.  


Consider being a part of the 'bunch'!  Join the I Back Jack Foundation and Bananagrams in The World's Largest Game of Bananagrams on November 12th, 2011!
