After hosting more than 20 events nationwide and impacting more than 3,000 foster and adoptive family members, JBF is excited to offer the Back to School Bash to even more communities in 2023. The second-year event will take place at host sites across the nation between Thursday, July 27th, through Sunday, July 30th, 2023.
Back to School Bash is a one-day event that focuses on supporting foster and adoptive children ages 5-14. All family members are invited to participate in the event, and the hope is that the entire family walks away feeling like they met someone, learned something new, and had an all-around incredible experience.
“This is a chance to celebrate, educate, and empower families with a fun-filled and informative event as they prepare to head back to school for the upcoming year,” said Jasmin B. “We are very grateful for Jockey Being Family Foundation’s leadership and support to make this wonderful event a reality for foster and adoptive families in our community.”
Each Back to School Bash will provide guests and their families with back-to-school supplies, educational resources, and an opportunity to connect with other heroes, like them, in the foster and adoption world. More importantly, it is a chance for the entire community to come together and wrap their arms around these children and families who need us the most.
The hope is that the event will serve as a catalyst for the community to begin investing in and supporting foster and adoptive children and their families on an ongoing basis.
“We’re thrilled with the response that we received from event hosts who participated in the event last year,” said Jake McGhee, VP and chief philanthropy officer, Jockey. “What excited us most was that many of the host sites were able to create lasting relationships and continue to support foster and adoptive families on an ongoing basis. It’s much more than just a one-day event.”
