MLB Stars Join Jon Jay for a Fun-Filled Event
Benefiting Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami Dade
Jon Jay, MLB outfielder on the St. Louis Cardinals World Series Championship team, hosted the 7th Annual Jon Jay FMSbonds Celebrity Bowling Challenge with more than 250 supporters at Splitsville Lanes in Miami. The Miami native and Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade alumnus was joined by a sold-out crowd, including MLB stars and celebrities: Gio Gonzalez (Washington Nationals), Jon Beason (retired NFL), Kevin Seigrist (St. Louis Cardinals), Tommy Pham (St. Louis Cardinals), Kolten Wong (St. Louis Cardinals) and Danny Valencia (MLB free agent). The surprise of the evening came when Gerard Loisel, past president of the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame, presented Jay with the official jacket and ring from UM Sports Hall of Fame. Jay was inducted last year but was not present to receive the iconic jacket and ring. The event raised more than $75,000 for Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s Project Learn After School Program.
