Let's help our friend Jonathan Tjarks

Donation protected

Jonathan Tjarks, our friend and former Mavs Moneyball staff writer, is battling a difficult form of cancer. Our staff is located all over the world  and  since not all of us can be at the fundraiser (more below) we want to help raise funds for him and his family to help with medical care, expenses, and other needs. Insurance only covers so much given the kind of treatments he's receiving. We will present these funds to the Tjarks family at a fundraiser at The Pub McKinney  on July 31st (1-4pm, which you can also attend. 

The Pub McKinney from 1-4pm on July 31st.
McKinney, TX 75069

The Tjarks family are direct beneficiaries of these funds. The money goes directly from GoFundMe to the Tjarks family.

His wife Melissa is writing about their journey here . 

Please help and spread the word. Let's pass this goal and raise as much money as we can.
