JAI-ALAI – FAST-PACED, FUN, AND A WINNING WAY FOR LOCAL CHARITIES TO RAISE SUPPORT

Magic City Jai-Alai, the preeminent professional jai-alai league in the United States, generously donated close to $60,000 to local charities as part of its second Battle Court season. Organizations including A Safe Haven for Newborns, Better than Wonderful Foundation, Ron Magill Conservation Endowment, and Young Musicians  Unite were selected by squad owners as their charities of choice to receive financial support over the nine-week period.  The season culminated at the Championship Finals on Nov. 18 when the Rebote Renegades won the championship. That  evening alone earned A Safe Haven for Newborns and Young Musicians Unite $25,000 each in one evening.  

“We are proud to showcase a top-tier jai-alai program and support local non-profits including the A Safe Haven for  Newborns, the Better than Wonderful Foundation, Ron Magill Conservation Endowment, and Young Musicians Unite who  are each serving a critical need in our community,” said Scott Savin, Chief Operating Officer at Magic City Jai-Alai. “It was  great to see our charitable partners enjoy the game and root for their squads.”  

In addition to the Championship Finals, participating charities raised awareness and earned funds by having supporters  attend Friday night games throughout the season, by squads winning designated charity matches, and through a variety  of multimedia opportunities.  

“We were thrilled to be selected as a charitable partner and to have won $25,000 in one evening,” said Nick Silverio, founder of A Safe Haven for Newborns. “It was an exciting way to foster support for our mission.”  

Battle Court, the highly popular team jai-alai concept which caught the attention of millions of jai-alai and sports  enthusiasts in its inaugural season, offers seasonal squad ownership opportunities. Season II squad owners who selected  the participating charities included Chris Cote, producer of the ‘Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz,’ who owned the Cesta  Cyclones, Jammin’ Johnny from El Zol 106.7FM who owned the Rebote Renegades squad, K. Marie “La Gringa Más Latina”  from TU 94.9FM who owned the Wall Warriors squad, and Michael and Nina Blechman who owned the Chula Chargers  squad. Battle Court Season III begins on Feb. 3, 2023 and will be broadcast on ESPN3.
