Jacksonville, Florida (July 31, 2018) – On the steps of Jacksonville’s City Hall, Mayor Lenny Curry led a group of community leaders and representatives from various charitable organizations to proclaim July 13 as THE PLAYERS Championship Charity Day in celebration of THE PLAYERS Championship reaching a charitable milestone. THE PLAYERS tournament reached more than $100 million in total donations
During the event, the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus (JCC) Touring and Concert Choir members were asked to perform, and THE PLAYERS surprised the JCC with a 32-passenger bus. This generous donation will afford the JCC many opportunities to travel for performances and enrichment.
THE PLAYERS Championship has been a supporter of the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus since 2010, and it is evident by this remarkable gift that they care for the ongoing success of our mission.

“JCC truly embodies some of the best qualities of team sports: camaraderie, discipline, patience, persistence, and positive mentoring.”

Wali Gomes, JCC Parent

“The JCC is more than just a chorus; it is truly a life-changing experience. The Chorus has opened me to new experiences, provided me with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and helped me discover singing is not just one of my interests but rather a lifelong passion.”

Emma, 17, Touring and Concert Choirs

“Music plays a major role in the full development of a child. Not only does it enrich lives, it also serves as a pathway for students to express themselves and explore new ways to communicate with others. For 20 years, kudos to the JCC for molding the lives of young artists, and I look forward to the next 20 years.”

Tim Cost, President, Jacksonville University

“The Chorus expands your musical horizons and helps you grow as a person. You are surrounded with other young people who have something in common…their love of music. I have learned that music does, indeed, bring people and cultures together. The music we sing brings people hope for a better future of understanding and cooperation.”

Jasmine, 16, Touring and Concert Choirs

“It is gratifying the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus program covers so much of what is not available to children in the Duval Public Schools. The children who have an opportunity to participate in your Chorus are very fortunate to have this outstanding musical training available to them. The entire community benefits from your talent and that of the children.”

Dr. Frances B. Kinne, Chancellor Emeritus and Past President, Jacksonville University
