10-04-14 – Friends of Jason Gould Fundraiser – Aurora IL

I initiated the Friends of Jason Gould Fundraiser troop because Jason was a huge Star Wars fan and was my wife's late husband. After losing his battle to Leukemia, his family carried out his wishes to raise money for Leukemia research.

The event was a huge success! We posed for several photos – that were taken and printed at the event by Matthew Crowley Photography. Just the photos alone raised $464.00.

5 Star Wars item auctioned for a total of $3805.00

This event raised an outstanding $22,571!!!

All of the money goes directly to research at Ohio State University. Dr. Rob Baiocchi has already developed a vaccine for the Epstein Barr Virus and is saving lives with the money that Friends of Jason raises.

Thank you to all that came out to support!
