A Series to Remember

The Joe Niekro Foundation (TJNF) is excited to announce our next fundraiser, “A Series To Remember” on June 19th, in Detroit.  Get up close and personal with former Detroit Tigers players from the ’68 and ’84 World Series teams, including Al Kaline, Mickey Lolich, Gates Brown, Jon Warden, Dan Petry, Dave Rozema, Dave Bergman and more to be announced.   The evening, hosted at Grosse Pointe War Memorial, will include cocktails, dinner and a panel discussion with the players, plus a computer simulation of the World Series games between the teams.

The Joe Niekro Foundation (TJNF) was founded in 2007 and is the “brain child” of Natalie Niekro (daughter of Joe).  Joe Niekro was a twenty-two year veteran of professional baseball who suddenly lost his life from a cerebral brain aneurysm in October 2006.   The foundation’s mission is to educate the public on aneurysm factors, causes and symptoms, while providing funds to support early detection research and awareness. 

It is estimated that there are currently 6 million people in the U.S. who have an unruptured brain aneurysm, or 1 in 50 people.  Every 8 minutes an aneurysm ruptures, taking the lives of nearly 50% immediately.  Of those remaining, 50% will suffer a delayed death and remaining survivors will likely suffer severe brain deficits.  Brain aneurysms are most prevalent between the ages 35-60, but occur in 3 out of 10 children as well.  Women, more than men, are documented to suffer from brain aneurysms at a ratio of 3:2.  These staggering statistics validate the critical need for aneurysm support, awareness and research funding.

TJNF is a tax-exempt organization (Tax #42-1740818) thus any donation is tax deductible according to IRS standards.  All proceeds from the event will benefit aneurysm research and treatment, serving brain aneurysm survivors, and raising awareness.

We invite you to join us in the fight as we continue to battle this silent enemy taking the lives of thousands every year.
