Jacob's Mom, Sarah, competed on this season of American Ninja Warrior! The event filming took place in Cleveland on May 8th and when it finally aired, we had a viewing party at Buffalo Wild Wings in Manchester, CT. Wow, what a great event! Not only did we finally get to see how Sarah did, but we raised a lot of money and the nation finally got to know Jacob a little bit better. We brought in about $2,800 in donations for t-shirts, bracelets, magnets, hoodies, and just plain generosity. AND BWW kicked in 20% of nights sales plus a little extra which worked out to $1,250, which brought the total for the night to over $4,000! Thank you to everyone who made this night such a success and a wonderful way to honor Jacob. A special thanks to Buffalo Wild Wings and their staff and a super special thank you to the Production Crew at ANW; they made a wonderful tribute to Jacob possible and are some extremely thoughtful and kind people. Sarah and the JRPF is hoping to continue working with them in the future!
