COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio Dominican's softball team will host the Eighth Annual Friends of Jaclyn Day at Panther Field on Sunday, April 2 in conjunction with GLIAC doubleheader contests against Northwood, beginning at 12 p.m.
The squad has supported the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation, which is a non-profit charitable organization that improves the quality of life for children with pediatric brain tumors and their families, since 2010 when the team adopted Reagyn Semler as an honorary team member.
Reagyn will throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the game and will be recognized alongside her family on the field prior to the game.
ODU will also host a silent auction during the games. Prizes from previous years have included Ohio State football tickets, Ohio Dominican Athletics gear and apparel, gift baskets and gift cards. Opportunities for donations will be provided at the games, with 100 percent of proceeds going directly to the FoJ Foundation.
If you are interested in making a donation or learning about the story behind the FoJ Foundation, please visit the organization's website at www.friendsofjaclyn.org.
