First Annual Jamie Fund Announced by Dodgers

Mar 30, 2010

Jimmy Choo Shoes Rushes To Donate

 

Los Angeles, CA -   The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Greater Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce today announced the formation of THE JAMIE FUND to help raise cash or checks for current/former/future Dodger co-owner Jamie McCourt who is currently "down on her luck" according to Fund officials.

 

Immediate needs for Mrs. McCourt include $25,000 monthly for spa treatments, $2,500 for weekly pedicures, and $10,000 for daily household expenses, including shopping trips to Rodeo Drive.

 

"Rest very assured that all funds raised will go directly to Jamie McCourt," said a lawyer for the beleaguered McCourt who requested anonymity to avoid unwanted late night phone calls from his voluble client.

 

"Jamie is being more than reasonable. She is just asking that her basic living needs be cared for."

 

Given Mrs. McCourt's longtime support of all things couture, it seemed fitting that Jimmy Choo Shoes was the first company to give to the Jamie Fund, donating ten pairs of their popular satin platform heels. "Jamie's not the tallest of girls," said a Choo spokesman, who added the shoes retailed beginning at $1.095.00

 

Though personally "pro-charity," a surprised Dodger co-owner Frank McCourt said he "kinda wished" he'd been consulted before the announcement. McCourt said, however, he would not challenge The Jamie Fund's designation as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization.

 

"I'm not a cheeseball," explained McCourt.
