Calling All Superheroes! 

Our Lakeside event is back and better than ever, SUPER in fact. Please join us for "Heroes Among Us", July 23rd at the LeFrak Center at Lakeside.

This year we wanted to pay tribute to the heroes that walk among us in everyday life.  From the doctors that diagnose and keep our children healthy, to the community that comes together to support JJB & Rare Disease; they are all heroes in our eyes.

While the children enjoy all of the fun activities you will have a chance to bid on must-have auction items from your favorite local businesses, including a pajama party 10-pack from NY Kids Club, a dinner at Blue Ribbon Restaurant, a free class at the Hootenanny Art House/Music Together, and many, many more!  All proceeds will go to help fund life-saving treatments for children with Sanfilippo Syndrome.

Just like last year, "Heroes Among Us" will be held at LeFrak Center Lakeside in beautiful Prospect Park.  Tickets will include a full lunch * and access to these fun activities:

  • Roller Skating
  • Face Painting
  • Splash Pad
  • Silent Auction, Including All of Your Favorite Local Park Slope Restaurants, Shops, Activities, and More!

In addition, this year you will get the chance to take a picture with some of your favorite Superheroes. See you there!!!

*Lunch will include non-alcoholic beverages.  Beer and wine can be purchased next door at the Bluestone Cafe.  

Last year we had a packed house, so don't forget to buy your tickets early for our early-bird price*.

Adult Ticket:$40

Children 5 years and older Ticket:$35

Children under 5 FREE!

Raffle Tickets: 5 entries for $20** (see side bar for details)

*Ticket prices will go up July 17th

What exactly are we raising money for?

JJB is dedicated to the research and development of treatments for the Ultra Rare Disease Sanfilippo Syndrome.  Specifically we need to raise $17,598.23 to produce a viral vector  that will be used in our ongoing gene therapy research.

Can't make our event?

You can still be a hero for rare disease.  Donate HERE and watch as our real time thermometer rises toward our goal.

A very Special THANK YOU to all our sponsors who made this event possible.
