Super Jake Foundation Hosts 5th Annual Heroes Bash on Nov. 14 to Benefit Pediatric Cancer Research
Date:10/5/2009

GURNEE, Ill., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ --This year you can wear your Halloween costume twice while helping kids with cancer. Hundreds of Chicagoans are expected to turn out in their favorite super hero costumes to raise money for pediatric cancer research at this year's Super Jake & Friends Heroes Bash on Saturday, Nov. 14 at the Northbrook Hilton in Northbrook, Ill., to benefit The Super Jake Foundation.

"The five-year survival rate for neuroblastoma is only around 30 percent and that hasn't changed in 40 years," said Matthew Widman, president and co-founder, The Super Jake Foundation. "With only about three percent of federal cancer research dollars going to childhood cancer research, these alarming statistics won't change anytime soon without the help of more people and more organizations like ours who take on pediatric cancer as a cause."

All proceeds from this event benefit The Super Jake Foundation, the 501c3 national non-profit organization Widman and his wife founded in honor of their son, Jake Widman. Jake died of a rare form of pediatric cancer called neuroblastoma on May 27, 2005 -- having lived just four years, six months and 24 days.

The event costs $100 in advance, $125 at the door, and includes dinner, dancing, open bar, and a silent and live auction. To RSVP, log on to www.thesuperjakefoundation.org.

The Super Jake Foundation has raised more than $1 million in just five years, the majority of which has been used for research grants. As an entirely volunteer-run organization with very little overhead or administrative costs, the vast majority of dollars raised go directly to research and patient grants.
