"You Won't Believe This"

Tues., 9/25 | 9:00AM - 10:45AM | MEP 200

An abandoned child at birth, Jeff never had a choice but to be different. He didn't look like his adopted family and society had a negative attitude towards out-of-wedlock children during the 70's and early 80's. The only place where it didn't seem to matter that he was adopted was on the sports field. Once he was unable to play sports, he became fascinated by the magnitude that a professional athlete could have to society. As he matured, he knew that he had to help others who were in-need. This dream and his personal tenacity brought the two together to create Prolanthropy, the largest and most successful provider of philanthropy management in the professional sports industry.
