Brady Bunch Reunion 70'S Music Explosion     

  August 15,16 and 17th, 2014      

The Brady Bunch Convention Store is thrilled to be working with a wonderful and meaningful charity called  Have a Catch for Barb. 50% off all purchases on the Brady Store will be donated directly to the charity.

Here is a bit about what we will be doing with this incredible foundation.


Mission

Have A Catch For Barb seeks to bring families together through various events, to help them create memories that will last a lifetime while also raising funds to support cancer affected families varied needs.

 

Our Philosophy

Having a catch. It’s easy. It’s timeless. It’s a rite of passage for kids with their moms, dads, grandparents and each other. Anyone, regardless of age, gender, or socio-economic status can do it. You throw, you catch. You give, you receive. It’s that simple. Eric Shipon, a Philadelphia native and father of two teenage daughters, Lexi and Billie, hopes that this simple idea can translate into a national event to raise money for families battling cancer and to honor the memory of his beautiful wife Barb, who passed away on January 26, 2013, at the age of 49, after a valiant battle with breast cancer. Shipon has launched Have a Catch for Barb, a national awareness campaign, which in his words is, “…a combination of Alex’s Lemonade meets National Night Out,” to bring families together, to help them create memories that will last a lifetime, and to raise money to support families that are dealing with cancer. His goal is for families to go outside on a specific date, at a specific time, for 5-10 minutes, and “Have a Catch,” symbolically “tossing cancer aside.”

 A catch doesn’t cost much, but it pays great dividends in the joy and happiness of those who participate. Shipon foresees “Barb-specific” events at parks and ball fields, at baseball, basketball, soccer and football games – both on a local level and on professional playing fields, courts and venues throughout the country. He knows firsthand how challenging it can be to care for a loved one who is sick, hold down a job, raise a family, and pay the bills. His wife Barb endured endless treatments, procedures and hospital stays over the past year – a year she wasn’t supposed to have – according to her doctors.  The medical expenses have been staggering, the stress on Barb and the family enormous, and yet Barb fought and smiled her way through it – even mentoring and cheering on other cancer patients who were newly diagnosed. Her husband, Eric, promised Barb that he would start a foundation in her honor as a way to help other families cope, and as a way to encourage families to spend more time together. Sadly Barb passed before the foundation was launched, but the Shipon family’s determination is steadfast. Her memory will surely live on through their efforts.

 Eric Shipon likens his vision of Have a Catch for Barb to the movie “Field of Dreams,” in that there is not a single son or daughter who ever played catch with their dad, nor a single father who ever played catch with his child, who can hold back the tears when Ray finally forces out the words, “Hey . . .Dad? You wanna have a catch?”
