JJ Group_Kids.jpg1e2b5435HHFlogoWith the support of great community in the Fort Worth area and JJ’s first home in the Fairifeld, CT region, JJ uses his platform as a PGA Tour Player to raise funds and awareness for many youth-focused causes. He launched the Henry House Foundation in 2006 which surpassed over $1 million in funds raised for the bettering of healthcare and wellbeing of children. JJ has been fortunate that, in conjunction with his friends and partners, he has played a small part in the completion of numerous community projects over the last few years. The initial Henry House project was unveiled during the week of May 19, 2008, coinciding with the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, when JJ hosted the grand opening of a golf-themed teen room in Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth with a $100,000 check presentation. Working closely with Cook Children’s to create a fun, relaxing haven filled with top of the line entertainment and technology for long-term patients, the Henry House was thrilled to see the room already being utilized by patients on it’s grand opening day. The Henry House team gave over $25,000 to Cook Children’s to support this Child Life Zone.

Other groups like The First Tee chapters in Connecticut, Metropolitan New York and Fort Worth have received JJ and Henry House support for learning centers, program sites and visits from JJ himself. JJ worked closely with his hometown tournament in Texas, The Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, to host an annual program for many years: the Henry House Hideaway. Started in 2009, the Hideaway hosted thousands of local youth from partner organizations for a day at the tournament in a “Kid-Themed” Skybox with free lunch, goodies, games and more. Other projects have included, but not limited to, holiday gifts for the Lena Pope Angel Tree, ACH Child Learning school supplies, Wakeman Boys and Girls Club, the Down Syndrome Guild of North Texas, and one of JJ’s personal favorites, the KinderFrogs School at TCU.
