Photo Gallery | FUNDRAISING SUCCESS: J.T. TOWNSEND PARTY
The J.T. Townsend fundraiser was held Tuesday, May 8, 2012, at Nippers Beach Grille at Jacksonville Beach, Florida. This special event for a very worthy cause, “NIPPERS BEACH GRILLE PAR-TEE,” benefited the JT Townsend Foundation, through which J.T. Townsend provides medical equipment and assistance to others with disabilities. Pro Golfer Fred Funk and a variety of other national and local celebrities joined J.T. and his supporters and his friends for an evening of fun, food, drink, and music on the beautiful waters of the Intercoastal Waterway at Jacksonville Beach. For additional information on the JT Townsend Foundation, visit http://www.milleronsports.com and www.jttownsendfoundation.org.
In October 2004, while playing high school football for Episcopal High School in Jacksonville, Florida, J.T. incurred a life-altering spinal injury. 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." J.T. has repeatedly expressed to Richard Miller (Miller on Sports) that he feels that God touches him every day and believes that the Foundation is his way to give back to the community that helped him through his difficult journey and to assist other similarly-situated individuals. Certainly, through his efforts with the Foundation, J.T. has helped many others with disabilities and continues to use his contagious personality to inspire others to help with his cause. Nippers Beach Grille, Fred Funk, Miller on Sports, Liza Chung, Audi of Jacksonviile, Monehan Jewelers, the Jaguars organization and all of the Foundation's sponsors helped this fundraiser to be a true success. J.T. and his team of supporters are already planning the next event. Miller on Sports will provide the details of this next event just as soon as J.T. gives the "go ahead."
