The Jay Fund


For the first time in its eight-year history, the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund?s ?Champions for Children Gala? broke the million dollar mark in fundraising last Friday evening at Cipriani in New York City, taking in a total of $1,007,000.

?Friday night was a wonderful and record-setting event for the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund,? said Keli Coughlin Joyce, the non-profit?s Executive Director. ?The room was filled with enthusiastic supporters who expressed their commitment to children and their families touched by cancer. The energy was heartwarming and we are truly overjoyed to have reached this milestone in our fundraising efforts.?

The monies raised enable the Jay Fund to help families from the New York City area with emergency household expenses, funeral costs, gas and food necessities and hospital/clinic services as they deal with the emotional and physical adversity of childhood cancer. New York-area non-profit partners of the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund are Friends of Karen, Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, NYU Langone Medical Center, Overlook Hospital, St. Joe?s Hospital and The Valerie Fund.

Dr. Football and John Fennelly, those football gadflies, were on the red carpet for Tom Coughlin's Jay Fund Gala last night in NYC. Below are some clips from our interviews with: Kelli Coughlin - the executive director of the fund, TE Bear Pascoe, FB Henry Hynoski, C David Baas, Coach Coughlin and Treasurer Jon Tisch.

Pascoe is a heckuva kid as we know, but this was the first time we ever chatted with Baas and Hynoski one-on-one. The massive Baas is a real gentleman (he's from Michigan, how could he not be?) and you can see why the Giants brought him in. Hynoski is a very personable kid, too. He is also the Giants' type of player.

Some other players we spoke to: rookies Mark Herzlich and Greg Jones (both off the record) - but they also are proud to be wearing the blue.

Cipriani?s 42nd strret location was once again the site for the Annual Jay fund Charity Auction Dinner. It?s an event that has a major Impact on cancer survivors and their families through the support raised both here and in Jacksonville Florida where Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin worked before NY.

?Our biggest concern was we?d run out of funding in 5 minutes once we began operations in the tri-state area? Keli Coughlin told me just prior to the start of the evening.

The Fund's Executive Director, who is also one of the coach?s daughters, was excited at the continued year over year turnout of NY Giants players past and present, as well as the involvement of two current players specifically: her brother in law - OG Chris Snee - and Rookie LB Mark Herzlich, himself a cancer survivor (as well as a Boston College alum) where the fund had it?s start in the aftermath of the passing of former BC player Jay McGillis In 1996.

Tom Coughlin spent last weekend in the Jacksonville area at a charity event to benefit The Jay Fund, a cause that he has championed since his days at Boston College in the 1990's.? The Florida Times Union's Gene Frenette caught up with the Giants coach for a quick interview. Here is an excerpt...

Frenette: You've got two years left on your contract [four-year, $21 million deal signed in 2008] and you're going to 64 years old in August. If things go your way in the 2010 season and the Giants were to offer you an extension, would you be interested in coaching beyond 2011?

TC: I've not really spent a lot of time thinking about that. I'd say right now I would be. I'd entertain that. Thank God, I'm in good health. I'm excited. I am upset about last year, so the juices are flowing pretty solid. At this point and time, I'm certainly not going to say I won't coach beyond age 65.
