Auburn Football Receives $25,000 for Charities

Edgar (Ed) Gentle began serving as the director and chairman of the board at Custom Cable Services, Inc., in 1998. Graduating as an attorney from the University of Alabama School of Law, he is also an accomplished writer, having written a collection of poems and short stories in his book titled Pond Mountain Tales. A father of three, Ed Gentle makes it a point to take time out of his busy schedule to spend time with his family and attend Auburn Tigers football games.

Former Auburn football kicker Al Del Greco and the school’s current head coach, Gus Malzahn, donated their time to play in the Chic-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge celebrity golf tournament. On May 2, 2017, Del Greco and Malzahn teamed up to earn $25,000 for the charitable organization A Level Up, Inc., and toward the school’s endowed scholarship program.

Featuring current collegiate head coaches partnering with celebrity alumni or former athletes from the school, the Chic-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge began in 2007 and is one of the nation’s most highly anticipated charity golf events. This year’s Chic-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge donated $630,000 to 15 colleges or universities and $170,000 to other charitable groups.

Since its inception, the Chic-fil-A Peach Bowl has been known as the most charitable collegiate football bowl game, as it has donated $6.8 million toward scholarships and other deserving causes.
