Tuggle and Van Note are members of the franchise’s Ring of Honor. Curry was the 1980 Associated Press rookie of the year.
Hal Moore is chairman of the Falcons Nation Charity Organization, which is a not-for-profit corporation whose primary purpose is to utilize the relationship between the Atlanta Falcons and its fans to facilitate the charitable goals of the Atlanta Falcons, its players, and staff. FNCO will accomplish this goal through independent fundraising and making its members available for volunteer service.
You can contact the group through Moore at FNCO@FalconNationCharities.org.
