Florida couple pays big bucks for day with NFL QB Tim Tebow
According to YAHOO SPORTS, Tim Tebow isn’t the only one in denial tonight after it was revealed that during an auction a Florida couple payed $100,000 to hang out with the football stud for just a day.
Erik Dellenback President of Tim Tebow’s charity told ESPN New York:
“They live in a part of town that has a lot of people in need and a lot of people with a lot of wealth, and she felt like bringing Timmy to her town down there would maybe change the town. It sounds like she’s going to have a little event where she brings over some of the kids who are in need and some of the kids who are pretty deserving.
“I got goosebumps thinking about it because that’s what the night was. You thought (the bid) was for one reason — which you worry [because] you think, ‘Why is somebody paying $100,000?’ — and then you found out what their motives are and you’re just blown away by how God had moved in the room at the time.”
Tim himself was pretty shocked that somebody paid that much money for himself:
“It was very humbling, and you don’t necessarily feel worthy,” Tebow said Saturday at TPC Sawgrass, at the golf tournament that concluded the foundation’s events. “That day I feel like I’ve got to do a few extra things to be special, you know? I’ve got to try to be a little bit better.”
