The Jaguars 50/50 Fan Raffle for Charity, a program that gives fans an opportunity to raise money for the Jacksonville community and a chance to be the big winner, continues this Sunday. Fans can purchase raffle tickets throughout the game, with a chance to win half of the net proceeds. The other half benefits the Jaguars Foundation and a co-recipient charity, with each game benefitting a different charity.
As part of the Jaguars Military Appreciation Game initiatives on Sunday, December 7th, K9s For Warriors will be the beneficiary of the Jaguars Foundation's 50/50 Fan Raffle for Charity. Jaguars fans will have the opportunity at the game to buy raffle tickets to support this organization and their initiatives. K9s for Warriors provides service dogs to post-9/11 veterans and active duty service members who are diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder or other combat-related injuries. Ninety-five percent of the dogs are rescues or owner surrenders. Their three-week, live-in program provides great camaraderie and peer support for veterans.
Shari Duval, President of K9s for Warriors, stated, "K9s for Warriors would like to thank the Jaguars, the Jaguars Foundation and all the Jaguars fans for their continued support. Your efforts give a new leash on life to rescue dogs and military heroes."
During the game, volunteers and staff will sell raffle tickets to fans. There will be six permanent kiosks; located on the main concourse by the Bud Zone and near the ramps at Gates 2,3, and 4; as well as one in both the east and west lower clubs. Ten mobile sellers will be in the pregame 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.
Previous co-recipient charities for this season have been the Jacksonville Humane Society, JT Townsend Foundation, Joshua Frase Foundation, 26.2 With Donna Foundation, Hubbard House, and Wolfson Children's Hospital.
