Crowd estimates for former Gator quarterback Tim Tebow’s appearance last Saturday at Palm Beach Autographs ranged from 2,000 to 3,000 people. So many that Tebow stayed until about 7:30 p.m. – long after the event at the store at Downtown at the Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens was supposed to end at 5 p.m., so he could sign every autograph and pose for every photo, according to Palm Beach Autographs co-founder Steve Dodson. The event was a fundraiser for the Tim Tebow Foundation.
Only Gators spoke with Tebow at the event, read more here.
And of course, there’s that now famous moment when Tebow helped Ian Lis propose to Sarah Springer. Lis arranged the moment with representatives of the store and Tebow agreed. When Lis, in an orange shirt, and Springer, in a blue dress, got to the stage to meet Tebow, the Heisman Trophy winner pulled out the ring box and told Springer that Lis had a question for her. The moment even made CBS’ The Early Show.
Having Albert the Alligator do the Hora at your wedding is one thing, but Tebow helping you propose? How do people come up with these ideas?
