Expect Miracles Foundation – Financial Services Against Cancer is excited to announce the Inaugural Kan Jam Classic in New York, a fundraiser for the Expect Miracles Foundation Scholarship! Friday, April 7, 2017 Expect Miracles’ young professional group will be hosting this fundraising event to bring young financial professionals together for an exciting evening of friendly Kan Jam competition, great networking, and lively entertainment -- all for a greater purpose, to raise funds for a cure.
Teams of 2-4 people are asked to fundraise $500. That is only about $125 per team member and matching gifts can count towards your fundraising goal! The money you raise for this event will support research at Memorial Sloan Kettering's Center for Experimental Therapeutics and the Expect Miracles Foundation Scholarship, which is awarded each year to a student who is currently undergoing treatment, or has survived cancer.
A team entry secures a spot in the round robin style Kan Jam tournament. After round robin, winner and loser brackets are created where teams battle for the Kan Jam Championship. Winner of the losers bracket is granted 3rd place in the entire tournament. The team entry also includes unlimited entry to the beer garden, on site activities, award ceremony, and event t-shirts for all players.
Prizes will be awarded for top fundraising teams, individuals, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place Kan Jam teams. Players and spectators will all have the opportunity to win some awesome giveaways. Sign up with colleagues as a company team, or recruit your friends for a memorable night, and help Expect Miracles Foundation raise critical funds for the fight against cancer!
