Jaguars Foundation and Second Harvest North Florida team up for 50/50 Raffle

Posted Sep 24, 2013

Jaguars Foundation and Second Harvest North Florida team up for the Jaguars 50/50 Raffle for Charity.

New for the 2013 football season, the Jaguars Foundation presents the Jaguars 50/50 Raffle for Charity.  Each game, fans can purchase raffle tickets with a chance to be the big winner.  Half of the net proceeds will go to one winner.  The other half will benefit the Jaguars Foundation and a co-recipient charity, with each game benefiting a different charity.  

The 50/50 Raffle co-recipients for the first three games of the season were First Coast No More Homeless Pets, Family Promise, and the JT Townsend Foundation. Jaguars Foundation President Peter Racine noted, "More than $30,000 has been raised over the course of these first three games. The Jaguars Foundation will continue building on this avenue of community support at this Sunday’s game, with Second Harvest of North Florida as the partner charity."

During the game, volunteers will sell raffle tickets to fans.  There will be four permanent kiosks; located on the main concourse by the Bud Zone and near the ramps at Gates 2,3, and 4; as well as eight to ten mobile sellers who will be in the pre-game tailgate areas and in the stadium during the game through the end of the third quarter.  The winning raffle ticket number will be announced during the fourth quarter of the game. Winners do not need to be present to win.

Second Harvest North Florida’s mission is to distribute food and grocery products to hungry people and to educate the public about the causes and possible solutions to problems of domestic hunger. The proceeds of the 50/50 Raffle will benefit Second Harvest’s operations in Jacksonville and St. Augustine. They provide important resources to almost 400 member agencies in a 17-county area in North Florida.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for Second Harvest and we really thank the Jaguars for making this possible," said Bruce Ganger, Executive Director of Second Harvest, "Hunger among working families, homebound elderly and children in our community continues to grow.  Every dollar raised at the game will enable Second Harvest to provide seven meals to feed those who struggle to feed themselves."
