Brunell chips away at pledge with golf classic check

Mark Brunell, former Jacksonville Jaguar quarterback and now football coach at the Episcopal High School of Jacksonville recently presented a $44,000 check to Wolfson Children’s Hospital.

These proceeds, from an April 2013 Celebrity Dinner Gala and from the Mark Brunell Golf Classic, are a gift from the Brunell Family Foundation and help honor his pledge of $250,000 to pediatric neurology services at Wolfson Children’s Hospital.

Baptist Health President and CEO Hugh Greene and Wolfson Children’s Hospital President Michael D. Aubin accepted the donation on Sept. 13.

The Brunell Family Foundation began in 1997 while Mark was playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Two years earlier, Mark and Stacy’s oldest son Jacob was hospitalized at Wolfson Children’s Hospital after being diagnosed with a respiratory infection when he was six weeks old. Fortunately, Jacob received quality medical care and is now a healthy active young man. This experience motivated the Brunells to establish a foundation to benefit critically ill children and their families. Since 1997, the Brunell Family Foundation has raised more than $1 million for charity, including Wolfson Children’s Hospital, the Ronald McDonald House of Jacksonville, and Dreams Come True.
