"Lunch with the Legends" VIP Tailgate

From Krisi comes news of the second annual GDay fundraiser for the Kasyn Cares Fund and the Aflac Cancer Center at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta - Lunch with the Legends. Over $100,000 has been raised by the coaches' wives in just over a year. This is a great event, a great opportunity to meet some great Georgia Bulldogs before the spring game.

Here's some more info from the email:
On Saturday, April 6, the UGA Coaches Wives will be hosting their second annual “LUNCH WITH THE LEGENDS” VIP Tailgate from 10AM – 12:30PM at Legion Field prior to the G-Day Game.  The theme for this year’s event is Legendary UGA Quarterbacks.  We will have 200 special edition Nike UGA footballs with the autographs of Georgia’s legendary QBs from over the last 50 years.  We have been overwhelmed with the response from our former field generals.  To date, we have secured commitments from and over the next two weeks will be getting the autographs of the following legends:  Kirby Moore, Mike Cavan, Andy Johnson, Ray Goff, Buck Belue, John Lastinger, Eric Zeier, Mike Bobo, David Greene, D.J. Shockley, Matthew Stafford, and Aaron Murray.  We will update you daily as these autographs are secured.  The Atlanta area QBs (Zeier, Greene, Shockley, Belue, Stafford + Moore) will be signing at CHOA offices over the next 10 days.  The Athens area QBs (Goff, Cavan, Johnson, Bobo, Murray + Lastinger) are scheduled to sign them at the Butts Mehre building on Wednesday, 4/3. Right now, I’m pretty sure that no Bulldog anywhere has a football with the autographs of all of these legendary UGA QBs.  Unless you purchase one of these 200 keepsakes . . . chances are pretty good you never will. 
Here’s the deal:  Anyone who purchases one of these limited edition footballs for only $200 will receive an invitation for two to the UGA Coaches Wives “Lunch with the Legends”.  In addition to the wives, we’ll have some of these legendary QBs and other former players in attendance at this event catered by Chick-fil-a and emceed by another UGA legend – Chuck Dowdle.  Gates will open at 10AM and wrap up at 12:30PM, in time to be in your seats for the opening kickoff.  We’ll have the balls on hand to pick up at the tailgate, when you check in.  If you can’t make it to the lunch, let us know and we’ll mail your ball to you on Monday, 4/8.
What do you have to do? Just CLICK HERE and buy one of those legendary footballs and then show up hungry on April 6th. If you buy a football and can't make it to Athens for GDay they'll make sure they'll mail your autographed football to you. Thanks to Paige Grantham for leading the charge, Shelton Stevens for passing the word around, and as always to Krisi for just being a Damn Good Dawg!
