Hello Jags Family & our local community,
This year, our family fun day will be held on Sunday, February 27th, 2022, from 12 PM to 5 PM, at Charlie’s Bar & Grill in Stuart, FL. The family fun day is our BIGGEST fundraiser of the year, and it is open to the public.
At this event, there will be music, food & draft beer specials, a 50/50 raffle, bounce houses, silent auctions, games for kids, and so much more. Year over year, this event is loads of community fun and helps to increase awareness and donations to our league. These donations help our board to provide equipment, uniforms, and future scholarships to our players, and it gives our players the chance to bond and have fun with their football brothers/sisters off of the field.
In this post, you will find details about parent volunteer expectations, player certification information, the registration for the 2022 Cornhole Tournament, and more. Please read through this information and let’s make the 2022 Family Fun Day the best one yet!
This year, we are asking all parents to please step up and assist our board in collecting donations for the 2022 Family Fun Day! This event provides the majority of the fundraising needed for our league to provide uniforms, equipment, and more. It is essential that we all work together to make this event successful. Furthermore, the 2022 Martin County Jaguars teams have grown substantially since last year, and our need for more equipment, helmets, and pads has increased enormously. While it isn’t a requirement for parents to help, it is STRONGLY encouraged this year more than ever, as our league has grown to double its normal size.
The items we usually collect for this event, include:
- Gift cards
- Gift vouchers
- Monetary donations (cash or checks made out to the Martin County Jaguars Youth Football Organization)
- Brand new (unopened) products
- Service related vouchers
- Alcoholic beverages
- Travel vouchers
Nail salons, hair salons, food service companies, sporting goods stores, grocery stores, clothing stores, shooting ranges, trampoline parks, crafting stores, psychic shops, etc. are all good places to go for donations. We will accept any and all items that can be auctioned in our silent auction or added to one of our baskets for raffle, and we are grateful for monetary donations to continue to provide a great experience every season. Our board members go door to door to ask for donations, and this year, we can really use parent involvement as our league has doubled in players.
The Martin County Youth Football Organization is a 501-3C non-profit organization and our board can provide you with any documentation you might need in order to receive local donations, gift cards, and items to raffle off. If you intend to collect items or monetary donations from local businesses, please reach out to Heather to discuss any questions you might have through the Band App or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Family Fun Day is open to the public, so we encourage you to invite friends, family, and anyone you would like.
