Former Falcons greats Jessie Tuggle, Jeff Van Note and Buddy Curry will be on hand for the Falcon Nation Charity Organization’s Lunch With Legends at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 11 at the Cheyenne Grille in the Peachtree Battle Shopping Center, 2391 Peachtree Road, N.E. Atlanta, Georgia 30305.

Tickets for the event are $40. The proceeds will benefit Kids & Pros, an Atlanta based a non-profit organization.

Kids & Pros was formed by Curry and Bobby Butler in 2002.

It is a character development based football skills camp aimed at the 7-13 year old. Kids & Pros provides many underprivileged children an opportunity to learn about life issues and football skills through training and learning from former NFL players. Kids & Pros has conducted 32 camps throughout the Southeast and has reached more than 5,300 children.

Tuggle, Van Note and Curry will take part in a panel discussion and will take questions from the audience. There will also be a silent auction.

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.

Tickets for the luncheon must be purchased in advance at www.falconnationcharities.org/legendsregister.html.

they aren’t really Ex Falcons… they just are Falcons who don’t suit up anymore.

Jeff George is an ex falcon as in excommunicated.

Hope people come on out to support this. It’s a worthy cause & we’ll get to meet some great Falcon players, plus have a good lunch at the Cheyenne Grill. Maybe we should get a group & all wear name tags with the names we use to post on the AJC blogs with. You guys should really take a look at the silent auction stuff as well. http://www.falconnationcharities.org/lunchwithlegendsauction.html The Freddie Falcon gameday experience, which includes sideline passes looks AWESOME.

[...] Valdosta for stuff like this and the Branch for stuff like this. Does Atlanta charity stuff. Attended Friday Night Lights a few weeks ago with Ball Hawk and me. That last sentence was worded [...]
