“On behalf of the Torres and Rodriguez families, I want to thank FCHCC for putting a smile on so many people by providing them with the opportunity to attend for the first time to a Jaguars game. They were all like little kids, they all had so much fun. After going thru what they did in Puerto Rico, those hurricanes that left them with so many sad memories.” – from Lillian Gotay Bessellieu, Appeals & Disputes Coordinator, HOLA Community Director/Florida Blue
