Peach of an Athlete Role Model Banquet
March 24, 2015 at the Cobb Energy Centre
The 32nd Annual Peach of an Athlete (POA) Role Model Banquet was held on March 24, 2015 at the Cobb Energy Centre. Hosted by WXIA-TV's Fred Kalil and Sam Crenshaw, the Peach of an Athlete Role Model Banquet honors athletes and community leaders that hold the same values as Scouting and benefits the programs of Atlanta Area Council, Boy Scouts of America.
The Bobby Jones Award is one of the most prestegious awards that is given by the Atlanta Area Council. This award is in honor of Bobby Jones. He won the Grand Slam in 1930 at the age of 28 and became an authentic American "tickertape" hero. He is remembered for an outstanding character, in victory and in adversity. Each year the Atlanta Area Council, Boy Scouts of America presents the Bobby Jones Award to a person whose life and career exemplify those same enduring values. Past recipients include Andrew Young, Dan Reeves, Sam Nunn, Ted Turner, Billy Payne, and Hank Aaron and this year we are excited to honor E. Jenner Wood, III, CEO/President of SunTrust Banks.
The Professional Award will be presented to Harry Douglas, Wide Receiver of the Atlanta Falcons for the incredible impact he has had on and off the field.
Table sponsorships start at $2,500.
