Couple Pays $100K To Hang With Tim Tebow
An unidentified bidder spent $100,000 in a charity auction for the right to spend a day with New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow. Tebow participated in the Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., this weekend. The event included a gala Friday night, at which the donation was made. The money will go to support the Tim Tebow Foundation.
“It was incredible,” Tebow told the newspaper. “It’s humbling. You don’t feel worthy, but when people care about your cause and know that you’re trying to do something for other people, it’s amazing to see what can happen.”
Tebow told Newsday that he’s looking forward to working with incumbent starting quarterback Mark Sanchez when the Jets begin their voluntary workout program next week.
“I’ve been in contact with Mark, and he’s a great guy, we’ve got a great relationship,” Tebow said. “We’ll look forward to seeing each other on Monday.”
