JACKSONVILLE, Fla. –The Jacksonville Jaguars Foundation and the Jaguars Women's Association (JWA) today presented $50,000 in net proceeds generated from the recent Meet Me at the 50 fundraiser to local, non-profit organization In the Pink. Michaela Bradley and members of the JWA delivered the check personally to Jerri Millard, founder of In the Pink and a two-time cancer survivor.
"The support of Meet Me at the 50 ensures our organization can continue to provide uninsured or underinsured women in Jacksonville with wigs, mastectomy products, post-surgical garments and other items that allow them to retain their dignity during their cancer journey," said Millard. "I can never thank the Jaguars, JWA and Meet Me at the 50 attendees enough for helping In the Pink provide for more than 2,000 women each year."
The fourth annual Meet Me at the 50 presented by PRI Productions welcomed more than 600 attendees to EverBank Field on October 13. Super Bowl-winning head coach and ESPN Monday Night Football Analyst Jon Gruden entertained the crowd alongside his colleague, ESPN NFL Host Suzy Kolber. The event is held in October during the NFL's league-wide Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
"To say we were thrilled with the results of this year's Meet Me at the 50 would be an understatement," said Bradley. "The entire evening was a great celebration of all that makes football fun, and we're grateful for the support of all our sponsors and attendees. It's an honor to present this record donation today to In the Pink and know that we're making a difference in the lives of so many on the First Coast still fighting the battle against cancer."
