JackFest gets boost thanks to Season of Giving at Markets by Tiger Fuel
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- An organization that helps families whose children are facing cancer has gotten a boost.
The Markets by Tiger Fuel collected money throughout the month of October for JackFest.
As part of the company’s first-ever Season of Giving, customers at all of the Market locations were able to round up their in-store purchases.
On Friday morning, Tiger Fuel presented a check for $7,000 to JackFest.
JackFest works to keep families together through childhood cancer by supporting the Ronald McDonald House of Charlottesville and the pediatric oncology program at the University of Virginia Children’s Hospital.
It is named for Jack Callahan who was diagnosed with metastatic cancer in 2019. He spent many nights in hospitals being treated and his family was able to be with him thanks to the Ronald McDonald House.
Jack survived multiple surgeries, several rounds of chemotherapy, proton radiation and more. He is now a fun-loving little boy and his family wants to help others going through the same difficult journey.
