Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Donates $75,000 to Georgia Charities
May 5, 2017

The Kirby Smart Family Foundation and an endowed scholarship benefit from charity golf event

Georgia Head Coach Kirby Smart and former quarterback David Dukes earned $75,000 in scholarship and charity from the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament this week. The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl will split Team Georgia’s winnings equally between The Kirby Smart Family Foundation and an endowed scholarship at the University of Georgia.

“We were thrilled to host Coach Smart and David Dukes again for this year’s tournament and congratulate them for their successful efforts,” said Gary Stokan, CEO and president of the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. “We are honored to be able to donate $75,000 this year to further support both the foundation and the university in helping others in need.”

The Kirby Smart Family Foundation is focused on being champions in the community by supporting and giving back to needy children and families facing adversity. The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge is the country’s premier head coach and celebrity charity golf event featuring NCAA head coaches and former athletes and celebrities from the same school competing against their rivals, all for scholarship and charity.

Following its mission to support scholarship and charity at all levels, Peach Bowl, Inc. through its Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge will pay out a total of $630,000 to its 15 participating teams this year, with the winnings being split evenly between a charity or foundation of the coach’s choice and an endowed scholarship at each university.

In addition to the $630,000 charity and scholarship purse, another $170,000 was generated for charitable organizations bringing the 2017 total to $800,000 in charitable giving. Since its creation in 2007, the event has contributed a total of $6.8 million in scholarship and charity, helping make the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl college football’s most charitable bowl game. The Bowl leads all other bowl game organizations in charitable and scholarship contributions, giving $21 million to organizations in need since 2002.
