FC JAX Destroyers and Children’s Miracle Network to Host “A Night to Remember”
The FC JAX Destroyers and the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals are pleased to announce a joint effort in hosting a community event on July 21 that is sure to be a night to remember.

The FC JAX Destroyers’ July 21st match against the Central Florida Kraze will feature Jacksonville local Haley Richardson, the 2011 Florida Champion representative for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in the coin toss to begin the game. Richardson was treated at Wolfson Children’s Hospital for Osteosercoma and was selected as the state representative for her bravery battling and overcoming the cancer. Miracle Children will also be present and sing the national anthem as well as serve as the ball boys and girls during the game.

“The Destroyers have put in so much effort this season and the community has supported the players in every match,” said Kat Casey, advisory chair and brand director for the FC JAX Destroyers. “We’re so excited to partner with such a special organization like the Children’s Miracle Network so that we can continue to be part of something that gives back to the community.”Fans attending the match are asked to bring a new or like-new book to the game for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Book Drive for Kids. Books collected will be delivered by the FC JAX Destroyers players and given to the children in the pediatric units at Shands Jacksonville and Wolfson Children’s Hospital. The Destroyers will take on the Central Florida Kraze on Thursday July 21, 2011 at 7 p.m.
