AEW has announced two charity-driven initiatives in conjunction with Fight for the Fallen to help support COVID-19 response in Florida.
The company sent out a press release on Friday which explains:
Leading up to the highly anticipated FIGHT FOR THE FALLEN event this Wednesday, July 15, AEW today announced two charity-driven initiatives to help support northeast Florida’s response to COVID-19.
Funds from both AEW programs will be distributed to Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund and Feeding Northeast Florida, both of which will provide a range of health and well-being services for those struggling during this time. The two organizations are 501(c)(3) not for profits.
In the spirit of FIGHT FOR THE FALLEN, which raised money for the Jacksonville-based Victims Assistance Advisory Council last year, AEW is appealing to fans to donate what they can to Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund and Feeding Northeast Florida at http://www.AEWFightfortheFallen.com.
As part of the overall effort, AEW has designed a limited-edition shirt depicting powerful FIGHT FOR THE FALLEN imagery with a COVID-19 protective face mask at the center of the artwork. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from sales of the shirt, which is available at http://www.ShopAEW.com, will also go to Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund and Feeding Northeast Florida.
In March, the Khan family donated $1 million to various organizations to support northeast
Florida’s response to COVID-19.
“The efforts of the First Coast Relief Fund and Feeding Northeast Florida over the past four months have been truly amazing, but unfortunately the battle against this pandemic continues and that means their work is far from over,” said Tony Khan, President and CEO of All Elite Wrestling. “On behalf of everyone at AEW, and our fans, I thank both groups for their commitment to our home community of Jacksonville and North Florida and hope we can all come together to do what we can to support their mission.”
Fight for the Fallen airs this Wednesday on TNT. The show will feature FTR vs. Lucha Brothers, The Elite vs. Jurassic Express, Cody Rhodes vs. Sonny Kiss and Jon Moxley defending the AEW World title against Brian Cage.
