Jaguars Foundation and Wolfson Children's Hospital tackle childhood cancer with Jaguars 50/50 Raffle


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.  Previous home games for the 2014 season benefitted the Jacksonville Humane Society, JT Townsend Foundation, the Joshua Frase Foundation, the 26.2 With Donna Foundation, and Hubbard House.

For this Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, the Jaguars Foundation will host Wolfson Children's Hospital as the co-charity of the Jaguars 50/50 Raffle. Wolfson Children's Hospital's mission is to promote optimal health for the region's infants and children by providing patient- and family-centered care, education, research, and child advocacy. The funds raised during the game will specifically benefit the work that Wolfson does for their child cancer patients.

Michael Aubin, Wolfson Children's Hospital president, stated, "The Jacksonville Jaguars are a great partner with us. This 50/50 Raffle is just one of the many fantastic ways that they give back to our children's hospital. We are grateful for all those that purchase a raffle ticket to help support the future needs of our children cancer patients."

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 have to be present to win.
