Thanks to all those who made JBB 2013 such a great event! Ken & Drew from Sister Hazel, Emerson Hart of Tonic, Shawn Mullins, Stephen Kellogg, Yacht Rock Revue and Jay Brown rocked on Saturday night in the beautiful lawn of Barnsley Gardens; the golf tournament had an amazing turn out; and the family walk brought together more than 100 kids and adults for an interactive, inspiring morning. We can't wait for next year!

We are back! The 2nd annual Jack’s Butterfly Bonanza is an event for the whole family, combining an 18-hole golf tournament on Friday, a 2-mile fun walk Saturday morning, and a unique auction and incredible concert on the lawn Saturday night featuring music by Jay Brown, Ken & Drew of Sister Hazel, Shawn Mullins, and more to be announced soon!

Join us as we take over one of Georgia’s premier resorts, Barnsley Gardens, August 2nd and 3rd and help raise money for the Jack Gardner Memorial Fund, benefitting the Butterfly Fund of The Brain Tumor Foundation for Children.  The BTFC aids families financially going through the rigors of caring for a child with a brain tumor.

Jack, a wonderful son, brother and friend, was one of those kids… and we were one of those families.

    Golfing is best when done amongst great people, in a serene environment, for a great cause.

    On Friday, August 2nd, we invite you to join us on Barnsley Garden’s golf course, The General, one of the most sought-after courses to play in the Southeast. Golfers of all skill level will challenge themselves on the lush emerald fairways and bent-grass greens of the Jim Fazio-designed championship golf course.

    If you’ve never been to Barnsley Gardens, you don’t want to miss the striking views of mountain peaks and the best collections of par 3′s in all of golf—the course boasts an artful design that pays homage to the resort’s original vision. Jim Fazio designed the course to blend into the natural surroundings, personally selecting the 378 acres that the course occupies.

    Foursomes can join in on the fun in this four man scramble for only $400 total, complete with a light lunch, giveaways, prizes, and an awards ceremony following golf.  Reserve your spots here!

    We have held rooms so you can stay the night on Barnsley’s beautiful property for discounted rates!  There are also plenty of opportunities to get your organization, company or family involved if you can’t make it.  Read more about our sponsorship opportunities!


    Join us Saturday morning as we take a leisurely stroll around Barnsley Gardens beautiful property, and take to some of the smaller mountains surrounding the area.  No need to be a walking expert, its a leisure walk with some fun added in.  All ages welcome.  You can expect some surprises along the way that is sure to make it memorable, including a fun walker t-shirt!

    Adult walkers are $15 and children under 12 are FREE!

    Register for the walk here!


    Join us at 6pm on the lawn of Barnsley Gardens Resort for a concert experience unlike any other! The evening will kick off with Jay Brown and his One-Man-Band, followed by performances by Ken & Drew from Sister Hazel, Shawn Mullins, Emerson Hart & Stephen Kellogg.  Then, we’ll welcome Yacht Rock Revue to the stage to get the crowd dancing and rocking to a good cause.  Come up for the weekend, or just join us for the show.  Tickets are $35 before August 1st.

    Food vendors will be set up for cash purchase throughout the show, as well as a silent and live auction with unique items for everyone.

Jack Gardner was a truly inspirational person. Whether his role here on Earth was as a son, brother, cousin, nephew, friend or fellow student, he always made you smile. He never met a stranger and through his 6-year battle with Brain Cancer, always focused on those around him instead of himself.

If you knew Jack, you were blessed and if you didn’t, here is your chance to get to know what kids like him are all about…helping others. He gave his tumor to science, his life to God and his memory to all who were lucky enough to be touched by him. Come, “chillax”, join our family and make some memories at Jack’s Butterfly Bonanza.


During Jack’s 6 year battle, our family was impacted by so many wonderful organizations.  From financial help, to a focus on Jack’s younger brother Charlie, to organizations that granted Jack’s biggest wishes, we were blessed.

However, one organization supported our family in ways over and beyond, and we are proud and honored for Jack’s Butterfly Bonanza to be donating all of it’s proceeds to the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children, to give them the ability to help other families like ours with children battling brain tumors.
