Thumbs up to Jackson Standifer, who will soon meet his hero, baseball legend Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees. That will happen thanks to Glenn Siemens of Arise Solar for raising $16,500 to help the young baseball fan, battling Burkitt’s lymphoma. The money raised during the recent Golf for a Wish tournament will go to Make-A-Wish Central California, which grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Over the past eight years, Siemens has contributed more than $90,000 to the cause.
