3rd Annual JTS Memorial Luncheon

We are proud and happy to announce information for our 3rd Annual Memorial Luncheon! This is always a yearly community favorite and we love the overwhelming support and large turnout it brings.


This event is key to our success throughout the year as a Foundation and our ability to support local families, the outpatient clinic at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital and the Sunshine Sounds Music Program at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. Because of your amazing love and support - we are able to do this!

This year's luncheon will also be a celebration of Jed's 15th birthday. We look forward to spending the afternoon with all of you remembering Jed and the other special kids who have lost their battles. We will toast to them!
