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 opening game of the regular season this Sunday will benefit the Joshua Frase Foundation.
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.
The Joshua Frase Foundation, founded by Jaguars Alumnus Paul Frase and his wife Alison, supports families and advanced research for neuromuscular disease. Paul and Alison have a passion for supporting this research, as their son Joshua battled with Myotubular Myopathy for sixteen years. Joshua had severe physical limitations from the disease, but he never let it affect his mind or spirit. Joshua lived life to the fullest and his legacy lives on as scientists are closing in on a cure.
"When you generously give your time, love and hard-earned money to the Joshua Frase Foundation, you fund groundbreaking medical research in the field of neuromuscular disease. We are very close to making a huge difference in the lives of thousands of sick children," stated Paul Frase, President of the Joshua Frase Foundation.
