We suck!! No, really...we suck at Kan Jam. But the good news is we are GREAT at fundraising! Thank you so much to our friends and family who supported us last year. As a result of our efforts, we were personally able to make a $5,000 donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the American Brain Tumor Association. THANK YOU!! We have our eyes on a piece of the $40,000 that is up for grabs for our favorite charity. Please donate what you can....no donation is too small.
On September 20, 2014, 24 couples from Scotch Plains & Fanwood, New Jersey gathered in a backyard and competed in the first-ever Jam Kancer In The Kan event. Over $14,000 was raised, and a movement was begun. That movement has now raised over $1,125,000 for families affected by kancer.
On September 28, 2019, some of those same teams and many more will gather at the 6th Annual Scotch Plains/Fanwood Kancer Jam, Presented by Ray Catena Mercedes of Union. This year's event will be held at the Ashbrook Golf course and its new Tavern restaurant.
Teams will be fundraising and competing for bragging rights, as well as the right to award $40,000.00 to the kancer-related charities of their choosing. The remaining proceeds will help families near and far as they battle this vile disease.
Thank you for supporting us and helping to Jam Kancer In The Kan!
