Peach Bowl LegACy Fund

Since the inception of the Peach Bowl LegACy Fund, seven grants have been awarded to advance research for patients battling cancer at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center. Studies include:

  • Dr. Tobey MacDonald: Malignant Brain Tumors
  • Dr. Katie Sutton: High-risk Solid Tumors
  • Dr. Mindy Pauly: Refractory/Relapsed Acute Leukemia
  • Dr. Kelly Goldsmith: Refractory/Relapsed Neuroblastoma
  • Dr. Kirsten Williams: Refractory/Relapsed B- Acute Lymphoblastic leukemia
  • Dr. Edwin Horwitz: Acute Graft vs. Host Disease
  • Dr. Bree Eaton: High-Grade Glioma

AC, a Children’s patient and daughter of long-time Peach Bowl Vice President of Sales Benji Hollis, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia in April 2018. She lost her battle in September 2018, just five short months later. AC’s fight has now become the Peach Bowl’s fight.

Over the past few years, the Peach Bowl LegACy Fund has helped advance several new drugs and treatments until a breakthrough is made. Further, the Peach Bowl has established ongoing revenue streams, in addition to the $20 million gift to keep funds coming in for the fight against childhood cancer.

Peach Bowl Touchdowns for Children’s (T4C) is another effort supported through this funding program. College football fans can pledge a specific dollar amount for every touchdown scored by their favorite team during the regular season. All proceeds will support the innovative research in the Peach Bowl LegACy Fund.
