With the stroke of his marker, Curtis Pajcic added half again as much to the initial $100,000 donation made by the Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic and the Pajcic Foundation to the Jaguars Foundation in support of hurricane relief.
The resulting $150,000 donation will be evenly split between relief programs for Hurricanes Irma and Hurricane Maria, as well as support for ongoing Jaguars Foundation community initiatives.
“While we have many collegiate allegiances in our office, we all rally around the Jaguars and support the team’s community improvement efforts throughout the year,” said Pajcic, an Avondale resident. “Following the devastation in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, now seemed like the right time to continue the proud tradition of our founders Gary and Steve Pajcic in giving back to a community that has afforded us so many opportunities.”
“The Pajcic Firm has long history of supporting those in need in Northeast Florida and beyond,” said Jaguars President Mark Lamping at the Oct. 3 event at EverBank Field. “We’re honored not only by their investment in the good work of the Jaguars Foundation, but in their commitment to join so many local companies in rebuilding Jacksonville as one following Hurricane Irma.”
The Jaguars Foundation supports a wide range of local non-profit programs including youth fitness, education, military and veterans and women’s health and wellness. Jaguars Owner Shad Khan and the Jaguars Foundation recently joined with other local companies to donate more than $2.8 million to Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund.
