“Live Like Jake is happy to once more return to the Palm Beach Kennel Club, where we have a great time together while reminding everyone not to gamble with our children’s lives,” said Keri Morrison, the organization’s founder and mother to Jake Roarke Morrison, who was lost in a tragic drowning incident. “This event helps us raise funds to support drowning prevention and to create awareness of the importance of safety measures that should be in place in and around water.”

Food and drink are available at the Palm Beach Kennel Club’s Paddock Restaurant and snack bar. Space is limited, and tickets may be purchased by visiting www.livelikejake.com/events.

The event will take place in the Palm Beach Kennel Club’s second floor poker room. The Kennel Club is located at 1111 N. Congress Avenue in West Palm Beach.

Committed to honoring the life and joy of Jake Roarke Morrison, the foundation’s mission is to raise awareness for drowning prevention. This is achieved by providing scholarships for ISR self-rescue swim lessons to those who cannot afford them, and also by providing financial assistance to those families who have lost a child or have a child with critical care needs. Thousands of children have learned lifesaving skills as a result of the foundation’s scholarship program. ISR lessons are taught year-round in the foundation’s indoor heated swimming pool in Palm Beach Gardens. Learn more at www.livelikejake.com.
