Brett Smith is hosting the 6th annual Jack’s Bash event to raise money for the Jack Ferrigno Send a Kid to Camp Grants. Come join us at the Post Brewing Co. for a six course meal prepared by top chefs in the area paired with local beers. You won’t want to miss it!

For families who are new to our community, this program was created in honor of Jack Ferrigno, a young boy with autism who thought in colors and brightened the lives of those around him. Jack's parents, John Ferrigno and Kelly Straub, joined Brett Smith, The Post Brewing Company's head chef and partner, to help other kids with autism access recreational camp opportunities. 

Kelly and John were so thankful for the camps that Jack attended and for the confidence and joy that those experiences gave him. Six years ago, Brett Smith approached ASBC with the idea of a camp grant program funded by an annual fundraiser to celebrate the life of Jack Ferrigno. He envisioned a camp grant program that would help families affected by autism gain access to recreational and therapeutic opportunities that might expand social skills and build confidence while most importantly having fun. From that vision, ASBC created the Jack Ferrigno Send a Kid to Camp Program. With the money raised, we have funded bike-riding clinics, skateboarding clinics, ski/ snowboard lessons, a rafting/camping trip and much much more. Families can also apply for money to pay for independent camp opportunities.

We hope to see you there!
