Send a Child to the Game



What is the Send a Child to the Game Program?

The annual Send A Child to the Game Program presented by VyStar Credit Union is an effort to provide Northeast Florida youth the opportunity to experience various sporting events throughout the year, including the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl game. Through this program, we provide transportation to and from the event, a pre-game meal from Chick-fil-A Jacksonville, commemorative t-shirt and game ticket to each event.

Each year, thousands of children from across the First Coast are afforded the opportunity to attend the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl game thanks to contributions from companies and individuals throughout our community. For many children, this once-in-a-lifetime experience helps to create memories and build friendships that live on far past the final whistle!

Your donation this year will provide local deserving children a trip to the Annual TaxSlayer Gator Bowl game featuring a ACC vs. SEC match-up! Donations may be made in any amount and are appreciated. Some of the best memories of your childhood may have included the opportunity to attend a college football game. Here’s a chance for you to help deserving children take part in that same experience!

Donations to this program provide each child with:

Transportation to and from the Game | Pre-Game Meal & Tailgate Party | Commemorative T-Shirt | Game Ticket

* Donations are 100% Tax Deductible*
