Dawgs Day of Play
Former University of Georgia football players David Greene, Jon Stinchcomb and Matt Stinchcomb recently hosted Dawgs Day of Play in The Zone at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite in Sandy Springs — an event to give patients a couple of hours of fun outside their hospital rooms. The guys played football, basketball, putt-putt golf and air hockey with patients. Dawgs Day of Play is a way for Greene and the Stinchcomb brothers to bring their annual Countdown to Kickoff Fan Festival to children that might be too sick to attend in person. This year’s fan festival was held July 11 at Sanford Stadium in Athens and was one of four Countdown to Kickoff events in July and August. Proceeds from all events benefitted Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and the Georgia Transplant Foundation. From left, patients make football helmets with Matt Stinchcomb. (Special Photo)
