One of His Favorite Causes
Child Cancer Fund Auctioneer, Myers Jackson in action for the Child Cancer Fund in Jacksonville, FL. While celebrating its 25th Anniversary on Saturday, April 6, 2019. The evening’s festivities included music and a live and silent auction. Conducting the fundraiser live auction was Myers Jackson America’s Auctioneer. Myers Jackson has been the auctioneer for the past several years. “The Child Cancer Fund is one of my favorite fundraisers,” Myers says, adding, “It is an honor that they ask me to do this.”
Infact, the Child Cancer Fund, based in Jacksonville, FL., is helping impact the lives of local children battling cancer and their families. In what is a stressful time for parents and families, the assistance Child Cancer Fund provides lifts some of the burdens from these families.
As a result of the generous help of donors and fundraisers, Child Cancer Fund is able to help care for families battling childhood cancer. Each New Years Day they host a fundraiser. Then again in April.
As a matter of fact, the event on Saturday, April 6th was their 25th Anniversary Gala. A Night of Building Bridges was the title of the evening commemorating the organization’s 25 years of caring for the families battling childhood cancer. There was entertainment, music and some auctions. Even an after party featuring the Litt Family Band. Robbie Litt got his start in music at the age of twelve in Canada playing bass for local bands. Six years ago Robbie joined a popular cruise line introducing America to him and his music.
Oh the fun that was had! During the evening was the tradition of the passing of the Big Gavel in which a new Master of the Gavel takes the helm. One of the many ways the evening was raising money for families battling childhood cancer. Each year attendees bid for the right to take care of the Big Gavel for the year.
Incredibly, the event saw record breaking success! Some of the items in the live auction were tickets for 2 trips to New York to see Saturday Night Live. How much did those tickets bring? $37,000! There was also extremely rare golf memorabilia signed by multiple champions at the U.S. Open. Not to mention a trip to Australia.
All in all, the event brought in over $135,000! Surpassing the goal for the evening. Impressive success for an incredible organization!
