COLUMBUS, Ohio — On Sunday, April 22, Ohio Dominican's softball team will host Lake Erie in a Great Midwest Athletic Conference doubleheader beginning at 12 p.m. and will also celebrate Friends of Jaclyn Day for the ninth time.
The Panthers have 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, who is now a senior in high school, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the game and will be recognized alongside her family on the field.
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.
