The Jaguars Foundation continues the Jaguars 50/50 Fan Raffle for Charity this Sunday. This program gives fans an opportunity to raise money for the Jacksonville community and a chance to be the big winner. Each game, fans can purchase raffle tickets, with a chance to win half of the net proceeds. The other half will benefit the Jaguars Foundation and a co-recipient charity, with each game benefiting a different charity. For the two preseason home games, the Jacksonville Humane Society and the JT Townsend Foundation participated in the 50/50 Raffle; the Joshua Frase Foundation was the co-charity for the opening home game of the regular season.
In addition to stadium-wide initiatives for breast cancer awareness at the October 5thSteelers game, 26.2 with Donna will be the co-recipient charity for the 50/50 Raffle. A familiar initiative to northeast Florida natives, 26.2 with Donna is the only organization in the U.S. that produces a marathon solely dedicated to breast cancer awareness. Since 2008, they have contributed over $3.5 million towards breast cancer research and care.
Donna Deegan, Founder of the Donna Foundation, noted, "We are so grateful to be chosen as the charity partner for the Jaguars 50/50 raffle. What a great opportunity for us to cheer for our favorite team and raise money to help us finish breast cancer. I hope everyone will come out to support the Jaguars and 26.2 with Donna on Sunday."
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 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.
