All Proceeds From This Event Benefit the Jacob Yeates Foundation
The Jacob Yeates Foundation purpose is to provide grant money to school districts so that they can help children in their district with school related financial needs. It has a fund set up at the Ava School District. This school district has been able to help children with shoes, glasses, field trip fees, school pictures, coats, club dues, a yearbook, and many other items that a child needs but many times cannot have or participate in because of financial limits. The Jacob Yeates Foundation would like to set up a fund at as many school districts as it can in the Ozarks and beyond.
Jacob Yeates was killed in a car accident 11-25-2006. He was 17 years old. He loved to help others with a friendly smile and a helping hand. After his accident, we found that he had been helping many of his class mates with needs that they had. The Foundation was set up to continue his spirit of giving and showing someone that they were loved and someone cared about them.
