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:
Papa Vino’s Give Back Weekend
Virtual MDI Tournament Apparel
Direct Gifts to the Jr. Irish Financial Aid Fund

Bike Drive for the Boys & Girls Club of St. Joe County:
Have you cleaned out your garage during quarantine? Have your kids outgrown their old bikes? This is a great way to support youth activities in our area by donating your used bikes
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:
