Today I am reaching out for your support!  Jacob's Chance has been asked to be apart of an exciting basketball benefit honoring and remembering an incredible man, Art Washburn.  Art was an advocate and big Jacob's Chance supporter! He served on The Glen Allen Youth Athletic Association Board and was passionate for, stood behind the cause and ensured that we were able to start and grow our Buddy Basketball program. Art's son Zach was one of the original Teen Board members! As you can see there was a true family passion for making sure our families had opportunities we deserve.  


Art passed away February 12th, 2017 suddenly of a heart attack. (Ironically, the day before Jacob's birthday).

Art left an amazing impact on his community that he loved so much.  Art was giving of his time, had a Big Heart and so often generous with financial support.


Art continues his support of Jacob's Chance and our mission.  Recently, we were honored to receive the first grant from the William A Washburn, III Charitable Trust.  (The paper work is framed on the wall in the office.)    


Several days ago Art's bride, Sondra reached out to me to invite our basketball teams to play at the half times of the first Art Washburn Community Classic.  Truly another honor for Jacob's Chance.  


Today I ask for participants and volunteers to register at the below link to play on the Jacob's Chance inclusive half time teams.  This is truly an honor and a great way to show Art and his family how much we appreciate their continued support.  Art was a friend and someone who supported me, cheered me on and stood behind me as I took the journey to grow Jacob's Chance. Always grateful!  

Takes a village to make great things happen!  How lucky we are to have the Washburn Family in it!
