As part of Capital One's The Match: Champions for Change, two-time Super Bowl Champion Peyton Manning has selected Lane College to be the recipient of his donation. Join Lanites and sports fans around the globe on Friday, November 27th for the premiere golf event featuring World Golf Hall-of-Famer Phil Mickelson and NBA Hall-of-Famer Charles Barkley going against three-time NBA Champion Stephen Curry and two-time Super Bowl Champion Peyton Manning at Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley, Arizona.
This event aims to contribute toward and uniquely highlight diversity, equality, and inclusion through donations to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) while raising awareness and spotlighting opportunities for diversity equality in sports. Lane College is especially excited to be the HBCU that Peyton Manning has chosen to represent in the event.
TNT’s live coverage of the event will begin at 2 p.m. CST and will feature a series of on-course challenges aimed at driving additional funding for HBCUs. For each of those holes, there will be a minimum of $100,000 and up to $2,500,000 (on select holes) donated if a golfer is able to sink a hole-in-one.
TNT will also televise The Match Pre-Match Show which will feature interviews with Lane College President Dr. Logan Hampton and student representative Ntirenganyi Karamba at 1:00 p.m. CST.
Be sure to tune in!
