GURNEE, Ill., Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Most young boys spend their seventh birthday playing with friends and unwrapping presents. Unfortunately one local boy, Jake Robert Widman, of Gurnee, won't be blowing out the candles on his birthday cake this year. Jake died of a rare form of pediatric cancer called neuroblastoma on May 27, 2005, when he was just four years old. This year, on his seventh birthday, his family, friends and hundreds of local supporters will celebrate his life by raising money and awareness to benefit The Super Jake Foundation.

In honor of Jake and the 12,000 other children who are struck with pediatric cancer each year, hundreds of Chicagoland residents and business leaders area will don their favorite super hero costumes and join forces against pediatric cancer at the 3rd annual Super Jake & Friends "Heroes Bash." This year's event, which will be held Nov. 3 at the Hilton Northbrook, is expected to raise more than $100,000 for The Super Jake Foundation. The funds raised will provide assistance to families with children suffering from cancer and also be directed toward research to help find a cure for neuroblastoma.

"Jake was our hero. On the day he died, we promised him that we would continue to fight this terrible disease on his behalf and do everything in our power to find a cure," said Ann Fahey-Widman, Jake's mom and president of The Super Jake Foundation. "Every year at the Heroes Bash, we celebrate Jake's life. Our hope is that one day we'll also be able to celebrate a cure."

Attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite superhero and join the fun (superheroes disguised in mild-mannered business attire are also welcome). The evening will feature the local band, Out for Hours, an open bar, dinner, dancing and live and silent auctions.

Tickets are $100 each and can be pur
