Woman Shells Out $100,000 To Spend Day With Tim Tebow

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (CBS Tampa) — The New York Jets are not the only ones shelling out big bucks for Tim Tebow.

One woman paid $100,000 during an auction Friday at the Tim Tebow Celebrity Golf Classic to spend a day with the former Heisman-winning quarterback.

“It was incredible,” Tebow told The Florida Times-Union. “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.”

The money goes to the Tim Tebow Foundation.

The woman, who has remained anonymous, plans to bring the Jets quarterback to the Florida Keys for the day.

“She felt that bringing Timmy to her town down there would maybe change the town,” Erik Dellenback, executive director for the Tim Tebow Foundation, told the Times-Union. “She cleared it with Timmy and it sounds like she’s going to have a little event where she brings some of the kids who are in need and some of the kids who are deserving.”

The event was held at the TPC Sawgrass Players Stadium Course.
