About the Event
Thank you for your interest in the R.I.S.E Up Foundation's inaugural event at Petersen Park in McHenry, Illinois. At this time, ticket sales are on hold. If you have any questions please visit http://riseupfoundationmchenry.org/ or call 815-679-6269.
The R.I.S.E. (Revitalize, Invest, Succeed & Encourage) Up Foundation, a 501(c)3, was filed by Wayne and Amber Jett in 2019 for the purpose of providing funding for projects specifically focused on enhancing the quality of life for children and their families in McHenry, Illinois. Examples include the installation of splash pads or other desired park improvements. Through their extensive community outreach and involvement, Wayne and Amber have identified that an organization like R.I.S.E. Up could serve as the conduit to make possible projects that may not otherwise be possible by linking the public and private sectors in a common vision for the benefit of the McHenry community.
The R.I.S.E. Up Foundation is being organized exclusively for charitable, education, religious or scientific purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, specifically to fund projects for children and their families as needed in McHenry, Illinois.
FOCUS FOR 2020
In 2020, the focus of R.I.S.E. Up Foundation will be the organizing of a benefit concert to be held in McHenry’s Petersen Park with 100% of the proceeds committed to the development of a family “splash pad” in the community. This will be accomplished by securing contributions from private individuals and businesses through sponsorships to fund concert overhead costs
