Jaguar Fans Raise Money To Donate Wedding Gift To Trevor Lawrence
The undisputed number one pick of the 2021 NFL Draft and former Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence thanked the Jacksonville Jaguars’ fans for their donations.
On April 9, a Jaguars fan jokingly asked fellow fans to raise money to buy Lawrence and his then-fiancé Marissa Mowry a toaster from their wedding registry gift list. Soon after posting about raising money to buy the couple a toaster, the donations started to pile up and eventually exceeded $5,000 within nine hours. After nine days, the donations reached $31,203, and the fan decided to donate the money instead as a wedding gift for the couple.
Lawrence took note of the generous donations made on his behalf by Jacksonville fans. “Thank you Jaguars fans,” Lawrence wrote. “We really appreciate the wedding gifts and donations for charities of our choice! In addition to the donations, Marissa and I will also be donating $20K to charities in Jacksonville,” the quarterback continued.”Thanks again, we hope to be a part of your community soon.”

In the tweet, the quarterback alluded to joining the Jaguars’ community soon. The Jaguars hold the first pick of the draft, and the team is widely expected to draft the best quarterback in this year’s draft class, which happens to be Lawrence. The draft will be held on April 29.
Lawrence and Mowry married in a wedding ceremony on April 10 in South Carolina.
