Jacob’s Heart

Concorso Italiano Foundation has been partnering with Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services as we continue to have a superior impact with the charity contributions on the Monterey Peninsula.  We are honored to place our full support with Jacob’s Heart as they are dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with cancer and supporting their families in the multiple challenges they face.  This family support often makes all the difference in the ability and effectiveness of the treatment a child needs.  

Jacob’s Heart envisions a community where every child with a serious illness has a strong, supported and informed family, empowered to fully participate in their care.  They strive to inspire compassionate action with local communities to create a safety net of support for the unique needs of each child and family.  These services include grocery delivery, transportation to make certain all appointments are kept and treatment on track, clothing, and games for siblings as well as the children with these horrific diseases.  

Concorso Italiano Foundation, having had team members and family impacted by cancer, knows all too well the trauma it inflicts on patients and the stresses it puts on the entire family.  We are most pleased to be working closely with Jacob’s Heart to bring awareness to their mission, and to help raise funds to further propel this key organization in such an important mission.  See this video of Jacob’s Heart.

In addition to our support we encourage you to personally consider offering your contributions when purchasing your admission  ticket here or vehicle registration here.  You may read more about their amazing work and history, by going directly to Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services.

When you see the volunteers at Concorso Italiano this August, many of these are friends of Jacob’s Heart allowing us to make a greater financial impact to Jacob’s Heart, so please be sure to thank them when you are at Concorso!
