The summer of 2024 marks the fourth year that Jason and Kylie Kelce hosted their Team 62 Fundraiser benefiting Eagles Autism Foundation in Sea Isle City. Each year the event has grown with more Eagles fans and more former players coming down to South Jersey.

The fundraising event started as just a Guest Bartending meet-and-greet at The Ocean Drive Bar, Jason Kelce's favorite drinking establishment in Sea Isle City. But the Team 62 Fundraiser has grown so much that the event has expanded to "The OD" neighbors at O'Donnell's Pour House outside area called Paddy's Green.

Thanks in part to The New Heights Show Podcast and Jason Kelce's popularity growing among Eagles fans, this year's fundraiser turned into a two-day event.

It was a Philadelphia Eagles takeover featuring over ten current and former NFL players serving as guest bartenders along with events hosted at Excursion Park off the Sea Isle City Promenade and the second annual Beer Bowl hosted on the bay at the Sea Isle City Yacht Club.

Jason's wife, Kylie Kelce, wrote the following statement on Instagram with the final totals for this year's fundraiser:

"Year 4 numbers are in…. In just 2 days you helped raise $865,000 and counting!!! The enthusiasm and generosity around this event never ceases to amaze me. People can say what they want about Philly and Eagles fans, but it’s things like this that make it clear why we are so proud to be a part of this community.  We might throw snowballs at Santa, but we’ll also throw money across a bar and chug some beers to support people with Autism!

 

This would not have been possible without the support of the generous people that attended, the tremendous guest bartenders, our incredible sponsors, the city of Sea Isle (including Sea Isle City Police Department), the Philadelphia Eagles and Eagles Autism Foundation, (along with) the New Heights Show team, the Yacht club of Sea Isle, and of course, The OD"

According to NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark, Jason and Kylie Kelce have raised $1.5 million over the last four years for the Eagles Autism Foundation.  It is an incredible accomplishment for an event hosted in a small New Jersey Shore Town every Summer.
