The weekend provides fans with unique opportunities to golf, take pictures, get autographs, catch passes, run drills, and play games with some of their favorite UGA football players in the NFL, legends from the past, and the current UGA football team. All proceeds benefit Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and the Georgia Transplant Foundation.
“The fans get to come out here, and we have a great time. We raised a lot of money. The golf tournament sells out several months in advance, but I think more importantly people come out here – there’s a buzz about the season – they’re fired up to see their current players, former players. You got guys like Kevin Butler, Garrison Hearst and Sean Jones, so it’s amazing how all the guys love to come by, and for the athletic department to be generous enough to let us use the stadium.”
“Overall it’s been a win/win for everybody. We’ve really been able to raise some great money. This is the tenth year and we’ve raised a little over $1.3 million coming into this year.”

“It’s going to be another great year. The fans really enjoy being on the field. This is sacred ground to a lot of folks, and there are not many opportunities to actually be down here. I think folks will have a great time.”
“Ultimately, after all the autographs have been signed, all the games have been played, the point of all of it is to support some very meaningful and worthy charities, and I think it’s proven to be a success in that regard.”

"I love supporting the Georgia Transplant Foundation and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta because I know every dollar donated helps a family cope with the financial burden that comes with receiving an organ transplant. Seeing my father receive the gift of a heart transplant, I quickly learned that transplants provide a new lease on life but also bring a list of needs including follow up care and medications. These two organizations are here to ensure this amazing gift of extended life isn’t overshadowed by the collateral costs and commitments."
