Kaley, Christian and Keira Young pitched a product on Shark Tank that was developed by their dad, a retired New York City firefighter, who died earlier this year from cancer related to his recovery efforts following the Sept. 11 attack.
The Cup Board Pro is a cutting board that has a detachable bowl to make cleanup easier. “It was his dream to pitch it on 'Shark Tank,'” Kaley said. “Unfortunately, he passed away before he had that chance, but we’re here today to continue his legacy and make that dream a reality.”
The Sharks all jointly offered $100,000 for a 20% stake in the business. They also pledged to donate all their profits to support charities supporting firefighters affected by 9/11-related illnesses. The Cup Board Pro quickly sold out after the episode aired Sunday (10/21).
