HBCU Football Classic Draws Record Crowd

[ATLANTA, GA- 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc. hosted the 22nd Annual Bank of America Atlanta Football Classic at the GA Dome. The game drew a record crowd of 54,202 fans, the largest amount of people to attend an HBCU game so far this year. In addition to corporate, political and civic leaders who have annually supported the game’s scholarship and community outreach efforts, this year’s Classic attracted members of the 100’s global network and many celebrity guests. A rousing rendition of the national anthem by Candi of the Atlanta Housewives signaled the kickoff of the game.

Many fans started the day on Peachtree Street at the annual Parade of Excellence that brings thousands out each year. The parade ended at the GA Dome where activities were already underway at the Fan Experience featuring the Coors Light Cold Zone. The annual meeting of Tennessee State University and FAMU was highlighted by the McDonald’s Halftime Show and the Tyson Foods Band Jamboree. Financial support from three sponsors included: $10,000 scholarship checks for both bands from Tyson, $10,000 check presentations to the Presidents of both TSU and FAMU by Coors Light and a $50,000 contribution by Bank of America to support the 100 Black Men of Atlanta’s Project Success program. For the youth and the families of project success, and the students and alumni of FAMU and TSU, this capped off a weekend filled with many highlights and history-making events.

“All of the FREE community outreach events presented during the Bank of America Atlanta Football Classic Weekend aligned with the 100's holistic approach of serving the community,” stated Milton H. Jones, Jr., President and Chairman, 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc.
