The event, benefiting the Tim Tebow Foundation, is March 12 at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. The Band Perry, Urban Meyer, Lou Holtz, Billy Horschel, Zach Johnson,  Chris Tomlin, Tom Rinaldi, Hugh Freeze, Paul Finebaum and Danny Wuerffel also are expected to attend.

“You can expect to have a lot of fun, see a lot of great people,” Tebow said in a statement. “But, it’s about stories, being able to minister to the incredible kids; that’s what keeps me going and keeps me believing in everything that we are doing.”
