JAGUARS OWNERS TAKE STEPS TO HONOR LOCAL AREA YOUTH
Published December 17, 1998
Jaguars Owner Wayne Weaver and his wife Delores "are putting their hearts and their imagination -- as well as their money -- into their giving," according to Kerry Dolan of FORBES. The Weavers are working through the Jacksonville Jaguars Foundation to "teach children about responsibility and commitment" by providing free Jaguars tickets to local kids who participate in the "Honor Rows" program. Created in '94, area youths from age 9 to 16 receive tickets after they have achieved certain goals, including promises "not to do drugs, smoke or consume alcohol," and participating in "volunteer work" or improving school attendance. The foundation has donated tickets to over 9,000 youths as well as granted $1.7M in cash to local agencies that work with disadvantaged children (FORBES, 12/28 issue).
