Proceeds for the first Collaborate and Give will go to the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund, which assists families dealing with childhood cancer. “As a Jacksonville-based restaurant group, we take great pride in supporting nonprofit organizations that make our community a better place to live,” said Matt Mannick, President of Forking Amazing Restaurants. “Tom Coughlin’s leadership yields amazing results — both on the field and in the community. Since 1996, the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund has provided much-needed support for local families tackling childhood cancer. We look forward to raising awareness and funds for this worthy organization through Collaborate and Give.”
