Don’t Miss JakeStock 2016!
Fundraiser/Family Event to Honor Memory of Popular Teen and
Benefit Local Community Members in Need
DOYLESTOWN – The eighth annual JakeStock event will be held Saturday,
June 4 from noon to 5 p.m. at George M. Bush Park in Buckingham (Burnt House Hill and Cold Spring Creamery Roads).
The event will feature lots of food (BBQ, water ice, soft pretzels, and a giant bake sale), volleyball, a basketball shoot-out, face painting and a moon bounce. A full schedule of local bands including Jim Roney’s Student/Camper Band, Ghost Mountain, Emily Ashton, Dana & Bruce, Alyssa Neiman, MacKenna McLaughlin and Robin & Friends will provide music throughout the entire event.
To honor their son, Rich and Robin Revere of Doylestown established the Jake Revere Foundation to help those in need of financial assistance. The foundation funds memorial scholarships to students from Central Bucks East High School, where Jake was a 10th-grader. This year, a CB East senior received a $1,000 scholarship. Last year’s Jakestock raised more than $3,000 for the Jake Revere Foundation.
The Jake Revere Campership Fund provides a yearly scholarship to a graduating Boy Scout from Troop 6 of the Doylestown United Methodist Church, Jake’s former troop.
The Revere’s three daughters, Kacey, 22, Kellie, 18, Sophie, 16, and many of their friends will help with the event.
“It makes me feel very grateful that people still care,” said Robin. “They want to show support and keep Jake’s spirit alive. It’s a good day to celebrate Jake.”
This year’s raffles include:
JakeStock T-shirts will again be for sale this year. There will also be a plant sale featuring hanging baskets with beautiful annual flowers.
Guests are asked to bring a donation of non-perishable food items to be collected for a local food pantry.
