Jumping for Drew & You Foundation

Latham Plaza & Seawalk Pavilion, 11 1st Street N, Jacksonville Beach, FL

Jumping for Drew & You Foundation Details: 

“I’m Daryl Rosenberger, a native of Jacksonville, Florida. My youngest son, Andrew (Drew) Rosenberger, took his life at the age of 30 in October of 2020. 

Drew struggled for many years and was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder two years before his passing.

When this happens to a person, a parent especially, you feel like you need to do something to give back. I’ve given a great deal of thought to what I can do to ease the pain and assist others, all in an effort to potentially help a young man or woman who may not be in a financial position to get the counseling and/or medication he/she may need.

I’m an ordinary man who is seeking sponsorships and donations to give back to those in need.”

Come walk the last mile with Daryl, Diane, Family, and Friends as Daryl completes his journey for suicide and bipolar prevention and honors his Son, Drew! There will be a BIG Celebration of LIFE with live music, food, fun, libations, and lots of hugs!

All tickets are DONATION based and your donation is the entry to the event. No minimum!

Please bring your own chairs to camp out and listen to the great music! Limited seating will be available.

Among Fogerty’s many hit songs, both as a solo artist and as leader of CCR, highlights include “Centerfield,” “Proud Mary,” “Susie Q,” “Fortunate Son,” “Born on the Bayou,” “Bad Moon Rising,” and “Have You Ever Seen the Rain,” among many others.  Tickets are still available.
