One-of-a-kind experiences and memorabilia will be up for grabs in the Famed Live and Silent Auctions all in support of transforming children’s big league wishes into slam dunk experiences. Individual tickets are $250 and sponsorships start at $2,500. 

Bobby Bowden is known as much for his affable charm as he is for his championship teams. Having coached young men in seven decades, he became the second winningest coach in major college football history. Bowden guided Florida State University to more than three hundred victories, two national championships, twelve Atlantic Coast Conference titles, finishing in the top five in the country in 14 straight seasons, and led the Seminoles to Bowl Games in 28‐consecutive seasons during his 34‐year tenure. The patriarch of college football’s most famous coaching family, Bowden remains heavily involved in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes; annually awarding The National Bobby Bowden Award to a student‐athlete for achievement on and off the field, including his conduct as a faith model in the community. Bowden was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
