The Incredible Trivia Night for Jaxon Stanley (Sat. Apr 30, 2016 6:00 pm)

Robert Morris University in Springfield has set up a trivia night benefit for an amazing family who has endured so much with their sick baby boy. In addition to trivia, there will be a 50/50 Raffle, Silent Auction, Mulligans, and a Cash Bar. 

 

The purpose of this benefit is to raise money to aid with the growing medical expenses incurred over the past year. Jaxon Stanley Gemberling was born on May 12, 2015 along with his twin brother Jase.  Jax only weighed 3lbs 6oz at birth and has encountered many medical issues.  Some of these medical problems include: double-outlet right ventricle with a large VSD (heart), renal agenesis (missing kidney), partial absence of corpus callosum (brain), severe scoliosis, and a gtube for feeding. The fact that Jax is alive is a miracle.  On September 15th, he went into cardiac arrest and the family almost lost him.  Currently, he is a resident of St. John’s Hospital PICU and, to date, has spent over 200 days in the hospital (the family has stopped counting).

 

Jax’s parents, Ann & Jay Gemberling, are not only alumni of Robert Morris University, but they are also an inspiration.  Ann is a former RMU employee and was such a motivating force and mentor to all of the students at Robert Morris.  Now the students are reversing the roles and giving back to her the way she gave to them.

 

* All participants Must Be Age 18+

HOW to participate...

Table of 6-8 players is $80

Individual seats are $12 per person

Sponsor a round of trivia for $100

Donate a silent auction item

Make a donation to Jaxon and his family

 

Please wear red in support of Jaxon and his journey. Thank you!       

 

Additional Information about this family’s story can be found on their Facebook page and YouTube.  The links can be found below.   https://www.facebook.com/jaxonstanleygemberlinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpyhWJSbvyQ.
