Missouri native and former Mizzou Tiger Quarterback Blaine Gabbert has recently set up a facebook page titled "Athletes For Tornado Victims", to help raise money to aid those recently hurt by the Joplin tornadoes. In partnering with the United Way and CAA (the sports agency Gabbert is represented by), they are trying to help not only those needing help in Missouri but people all across the country that have been hurt by the tornado outbreaks this spring.
The program is an auction featuring a variety of prizes. Some of the highlights include trips to The Masters, The NCAA Final Four, the Daytona 500, or a golf outing with Gabbert. The winner of the golf auction will get to play a round of golf with another friend, and Gabbert at a golf course either in St. Louis or Jacksonville, where Gabbert is preparing for his rookie season with the Jaguars.
They money raised is certainly going to a good cause, and a lot of the various prizes are pretty cool as well. Props to Gabbert for remembering all of those in need and using his fame for a good cause.
