Get ready to mix football with business at the Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce Kickoff Luncheon on Tuesday, Sept. 6. Hosted by JAXUSA Partnership, formerly known as Cornerstone Regional Development Partnership, the luncheon guests include Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver, Coach Jack Del Rio, the entire Jacksonville Jaguars football team and coaching staff, the Roar Cheerleaders and Jaxson De Ville. The luncheon offers a look at the upcoming football season and recognizes the Jaguars’ economic impact on the region.

“The true measure of a sports franchise is what it means to the community,” said Jerry Mallot, president of JAXUSA Partnership. “The Jaguars provide Northeast Florida with positive national recognition and significantly contribute to bringing new businesses to the region.”

Since the team’s inception in 1995, Jacksonville has attracted numerous large companies to Northeast Florida, including Fidelity National Financial, Rayonier, SAFT and many more. With an estimated economic impact of more than $200 million a year, the Jacksonville Jaguars deliver an enormous amount of economic impact, national exposure and community pride.

Doors open at 11:30 a.m., and the Kickoff Luncheon begins at noon at the Prime F. Osborne Convention Center. The cost to attend is $45 per person or $450 for a corporate table of nine. Each corporate table will include a Jacksonville Jaguars player, coach, staff or Roar cheerleader at the 10th seat. Corporate sponsorships are available, and sponsors are invited to choose the Jaguars player, coach, staff or Roar cheerleader who joins their table.
