Chip in on the Quad Saturday for Nick's Kids Fund (Alabama Gameday)
October 19, 2011
TUSCALOOSA, Alabama -- Fans can show off their golf swing for a good cause this Saturday on the Quad in the Travelers Chipping Challenge, which is raising money for the Nick's Kids Fund.
On the southeast side of the Quad near Denny Chimes, fans can win prizes and help the charity founded by Nick Saban and his wife, Terry, by chipping in on a floating green.
Terry Saban, former Alabama coach Gene Stallings and former Alabama quarterback Jay Barker will greet fans at the event in the afternoon. Fans will also have the opportunity to have a photo taken with Barker.
For every hole-in-one, Travelers will donate $500 to the Nick's Kids Fund's Project 13 for 13, a partnership with Habitat for Humanity that has an initial goal of building 13 houses, one for each of Alabama's football national championships.
Each fan who gets a hole-in-one will win an iPod Shuffle, and the first person who chips in a hole-in-one will receive a football signed by Nick Saban.
The chipping challenge begins at 10 a.m. and will remain open until Alabama and Tennessee kick off at 6:15 p.m. in Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Stallings will take a shot at the green and meet with fans from 2:30 to 3:45 p.m. and Barker will make an appearance from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Terry Saban and Barker will take part in a check presentation to the Nick's Kids Fund at 4 p.m.
