Typically when you read a piece about athletes and parties it is all about popping bottles and making it rain. Not this time. OurTwoBits.com has learned that the 2nd Annual Jorge Nation Foundation White Party is about to be announced via press release.
Jorge Nation Foundation was founded in 2011 in honor of Jorge Brouwer who died suddenly from a pulmonary embolism. Jorge was a huge Gator supporter, and his legacy as a party “firecracker” lives on even after his passing.
The Jorge Nation Foundation exists to enhance the lives of children through travel. The Foundation pays for all inclusive DREAM TRIPS for children (and their families) who are stricken with a terminal or debilitating health condition or illness. Here is a brief snippet from the soon-to-be released press release…
It was just two years ago when an all-white memorial service was held in the sand for 32-year-old Jorge Brouwer , a University of Florida devotee and founder of student-travel company Xtreme Trips who died unexpectedly from a pulmonary embolism following surgery. Following his sudden passing, and in a nod to Jorge’s alma mater (“Gator Nation”) and insatiable wanderlust, friends and family started his namesake charity, the Jorge Nation Foundation (JNF), which strives to send ailing children and their families on an all-expense-paid Dream Trip. On Saturday, May 18, its founders will host the Jorge Nation Foundation’s Second Annual White Party fundraiser at the W South Beach on Miami Beach.
Anticipated celebrity foundation supporters include the following Florida Gators: Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey, Dolphins center Mike Pouncey, and Tampa Bay Bucs safety Ahmad Black.
Other athletes confirmed: former Dolphins all-star Jason Taylor, Heisman Trophy winner and Saints running back Mark Ingram, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and Dolphins Mike Wallace.
