Interview With Comedian Dan Pulzello
The Tom Coughlin Jay Fund is a charity near and dear to my heart (so much so, they were the beneficiaries of my Ten Years Later book launch at Bloomingdale’s), so anything I can do to help promote their efforts I will do wholeheartedly!
Here’s a little back story about the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund mission, via their website:
The Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation was created in 1996 in honor of Jay McGillis. Jay was a special young man who developed leukemia while a member of Coach Coughlin’s team at Boston College. In the eight months between Jay’s diagnosis and the day he lost his battle with cancer, the Coughlin family saw first hand the physical, emotional and financial strains the illness caused the McGillis Family. After going through the tragic events with Jay’s family, Coach Coughlin vowed that if he ever had the chance, he would create a way to help families with children battling cancer.
Coach Coughlin kept his vow and started this foundation to be there in Jay’s honor. Since 1996 the Jay Fund has evolved in size and scope. We have helped over 4,000 families and given away over $9 million in grants helping thousands of families in Northeast Florida and the New York/New Jersey Metropolitan Area.
