Sabans’ ‘Nick’s Kids’ awards $560,000 to 130 non-profits
The Nick’s Kids Foundation on Thursday held its annual luncheon at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
According to WBRC, the philanthropy of Terry and Nick Saban awarded a total of approximately $560,000 to 130 different non-profits at the event. BamaOnLine added that the foundation also presented a check worth $100,000 to the Tuscaloosa PARA All-Inclusive Playground.
WVTM spoke to the University of Alabama head football coach about the luncheon and the important work the foundation does year-round.
He called this one of his favorite days of the year. Coach Saban also poignantly spoke of his father’s legacy, saying, “[N]o man stands as tall as when he stoops to help a child.”
The day preludes the start of the Crimson Tide’s fall practice beginning on Friday.
The Nick’s Kids Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and resources for deserving organizations throughout the state of Alabama and the southeast. Thanks to the generosity of donors and the off-field efforts of the Sabans, Nick’s Kids has donated nearly $8 million dollars to organizations and causes since the couple arrived in Tuscaloosa in 2007.
