J.T. TOWNSEND: PARTY FOR CHARITY WITH PRO GOLFER FRED FUNK | Events
What are you doing Tuesday night after the practice rounds at the Players Championship at Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida? We have an idea for you and your family and friends to enjoy an evening of food and fun for a very special cause at Nippers Beach Grille. Fred Funk, the 2005 Players Champion, will host the event and bring his PGA golf friends. J.T. Townsend has invited the registered golfers of the 2012 Players Championship as well as the Jacksonville Jaguars.
So, as J.T. says, “Let’s see who shows up because this will be the place to be during one of the beach’s most spectacular weeks. There will be some very special surprise guests.” J.T. and Board Member Liza Chung (professional designer, event planner, and wife of former Jaguar and NFL player Eugene Chung) expect 1,000 attendees, so get your tickets early.
This special event, “NIPPERS PAR-TEE,” scheduled for Tuesday, May 8, 2012, at Jacksonville Beach will benefit the JT Townsend Foundation, through which J.T. provides medical equipment to others with disabilities to improve their lives. Tickets for the event are $35.00 each and are available at Nippers Beach Grille (2309 Beach Boulevard) or online at www.jttownsendfoundation.org.
Listen to the video to learn more about the JT Townsend Foundation and J.T.’s plans for the future. In the video, J.T. tells his story about his October 2004 football injury while playing for Episcopal High School. He commented, "This situation happened for a reason, and life goes on." He affirmed that he and his mother, Carmen, believe "it was no accident, but that he was chosen for a reason." Certainly, since 2004, when the accident happened, J.T. has helped many others with disabilities and continues to do so. Miller on Sports and all of the Foundation's sponsors hope you will join J.T. and all his supporters at Nippers Beach Grille on Tuesday evening, May 8th.
