As a first-year participating team, Caretaker is hoping to raise $25,000. The firm is holding an event at Social Tap, 7318 E. Stetson Dr. in Scottsdale,  Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m.  “Jam for  Kids – Rock for a Cause,” will feature local bands.

“My Uncle Jim passed away this weekend and as a tribute to him I am fundraising in his memory for Broker for Kids 2013,” said Dena Jones, director of project development at Caretaker.

“He devoted much of his life to raising money to aid critically ill children. He was a philanthropist and a leader who left an amazing legacy. He spent more than 50 years raising money for St. Jude along with Danny Thomas and I would like to give to the children as a tribute to his life.”
