Former Professional Cheerleaders Start Non-Profit Organization 

Posted by James at 1:03 PM ET

Several former Jacksonville Jaguars Cheerleaders have created an alumni organization who is continuing positive commitments to the Jacksonville community. Professional Cheerleaders Alumni, Inc. was created by seven women who want to continue their sisterhood with other professional alumni cheerleaders, while reaching out to the community.

The mission of Professional Cheerleaders Alumni, Inc. (PCA), is "to be positive role models who are committed to having an impact on the community by providing service, opportunities, and support to activities that benefit women and children." These ladies have volunteered hundreds of hours this past year appearing at charity events such as Jaguars Foundation's Honor Rows Program, Paint the Town, Straight Talk, and many other community efforts.

For 2008, they have created a Community Grant Program offering grants to qualified agencies in Duval and surrounding counties who support their mission to help women and children. Funds from these grants come from annual dues paid by professional alumni cheerleader members.

These talented ladies will also begin offering Audition Prep Classes from January through March, teaching dance skills, interview and appearance techniques, and other tips necessary to help those ladies who are auditioning for competitive and professional teams. These classes will be held at Bailey's Powerhouse Gym in Mandarin, who has partnered with the organization.

PCA also recently partnered with NetBreeze Inc., to develop a state-of-the-art web site where the public can learn more about PCA and the new programs they have to offer. You may access it at www.ProCheerleadersAlumni.com.
