2020 Virtual MDI

2020 Virtual MDI Friday May 22 - Monday May 25

The 2020 Virtual Memorial Day Invitational  
Tuesday, May 19th – Monday, May 25th

While COVID-19 may have canceled our games, it’s not going to stop a 44-year-old tradition of celebrating the beautiful game!  Jr. Irish has decided to host the first ever “Virtual MDI” to support the Jr. Irish Financial Aid Scholarship Fund.  The MDI has long been the sole fund raiser for the Financial Aid Scholarship program at Jr. Irish, awarding $30,000 each year in need-based aid for families at Jr. Irish.       

Here’s how you can help support the program this year:

As you know, we had to make the hard decision to cancel the regular MDI tournament for this year. However, we are still going to have our own version of MDI!  Introducing the 1st Ever “Virtual MDI 2020”.  I know many of you will now say to yourselves “This sounds crazy! How can they do it?”. Well, I feel like many things have happened over the course of the last few months that we have never seen or will ever see again, so here we go… Because the MDI has been in existence since 1977, we wanted to offer our families a virtual experience as close as we could to a real MDI.  Of course, we won’t have actual matches, but we will have food, apparel and friendly peer to peer competition.  Our goals are to create some fun with our JI soccer community while raising funds for our Financial Aid Program.  

There will be 4 Parts to our Virtual MDI Experience:

  • Restaurant Give Backs
  • Apparel Sale
  • General Fundraising for Individuals, Companies or Sponsors
  • Bike Drive Event for Boys & Girls Club of St. Joe County

JI Families, we are so grateful for your support.  We do hope that this could be a positive experience in light of these extremely out of the ordinary times we are living in!
