Generous Donation Sends Lifelong Fan to First Jets Game
November 28th, 2016
On Sunday, November 27th Felicia Raines, a devout Jets fan and Arc of Essex County consumer, enjoyed her very first Jets game in person at the Meadowlands thanks to the generosity of George Holland. Mr. Holland reached out to The Arc of Essex County with two tickets and a parking pass prior to Thanksgiving, asking if we knew of someone in our services interested in attending the game. Felicia, who had attended her day program decked out in Jets gear hours earlier, and her mom, Joanne Raines, excitedly accepted the tickets.
"Felicia is a diehard Jets fan and has a drawer full of Jets regalia," said Ms. Raines in an email to Mr. Holland. "We had a wonderful time at the game - the seats were fantastic! The Jets played better than expected and Felicia was excited to see her favorite team in person."
Mr. Holland, who practices disability law, was inspired to pursue his career following his time working in a group home. The Arc of Essex County would like to extend our sincerest thanks to Mr. Holland.
