Emceed by renowned actor Anthony Anderson, the exclusive competition features over 35 celebrities shooting for a title and Grand Prize Luxury Package in support of the Pro Bowler?s main charity platform: Tuck?s R.U.S.H. for Literacy. ?To purchase tickets, register a team or for more information, please contact:?firstname.lastname@example.orgIn 2008, a passion to encourage children to READ, UNDERSTAND, SUCCEED, and HOPE led Lauran and Justin Tuck to start Tuck?s R.U.S.H. for Literacy. This initiative has provided 10,000 students in the Tri-State and Central Alabama communities with new books and materials to embrace literacy. Not only have the Tucks donated over 55,000 books and raised over $1.5 million dollars since founding the organization, but they have also supported other high-performing non-profit organizations for underserved youth with over $150,000 in grants. This year, in addition to benefiting Tuck?s R.U.S.H. for Literacy, the Tucks have teamed up with United Way and will be donating $25,000 of their net proceeds to the Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund.
