Tim Tebow Thrills Fans and Raises Funds at Autograph Signing in Fort Pierce, Fla.

According to TCPalm.com, “An estimated 1,500 fans packed the parking lot of Big Apple Pizza in Fort Pierce Saturday, as former University of Florida quarterback and current Denver Broncos rookie Tim Tebow took the stage to support the Van Duzer Foundation, his own Tim Tebow Foundation and the Florida Blood Centers.”

“’I just want you all to know that the money that we raise, on our end, goes 100 percent to the Tim Tebow Foundation,’ Tebow explained to the crowd in his welcoming statement. “Why that’s important is that all the people who come to get autographs and pictures know that money doesn’t go to me. It goes back into you all’s community and to communities around the world supporting seven orphanages.’ Prior to the public event, 20 people paid $1,000 to meet Tebow in a private reception at the Kight Building on the Indian River State College campus. All monies collected were donated equally between the Van Duzer and Tebow foundations, according to Steve Dodson of Palm Beach Autographs.”
