Murfreesboro, TN – In the wake of the Coronavirus Rutherford County Area Habitat for Humanity (RCHFH) has decided to postpone the 5th Annual Leave A Legacy event featuring football legend Eddie George to March 18, 2021.

RCHFH’s annual Leave A Legacy event will celebrate the opening of Legacy Pointe, RCHFH’s first affordable housing subdivision community in Murfreesboro. RCHFH will build four houses in the fall of 2020 and three more in the spring of 2021. Eventually Legacy Pointe will provide 77 new affordable homes for Rutherford County area residents. Money raised from the fundraiser will allow RCHFH to buy land and develop more affordable housing communities, a goal identified in the 2019-22 Rutherford County Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) by Vanderbilt Medical and St. Thomas Health.

Tickets for the dinner and event are still available through Eventbrite. Sponsorships and a limited number of VIP Tickets are also available. The Presenting Sponsor for the event is Ole South Properties.

From the football field to the board room, Broadway musicals to graduate business school, Eddie George personifies what we think of when we hear the term Renaissance Man. His football accomplishments are legendary.  A Heisman trophy winner and first round draft choice out of Ohio State, earning Rookie of the Year honors in 1996, it only got better. Starting running back for the Tennessee Titans until 2003, he was selected to four consecutive Pro Bowls, still owns virtually every Titans’ rushing record, and led his team to Super Bowl XXXIV before retiring after a final campaign in 2004 with the Dallas Cowboys.

George will talk about how perseverance and overcoming obstacles framed his career and how people can use the same determination to realize their life goals. He admires how Habitat for Humanity prepares and empowers families and individuals to become homeowners and achieve financial stability for themselves and their children.

The Master of Ceremonies for the event is Former Channel 2 WKRN-ABC morning anchor and current ESPN and SEC college football reporter Dawn Davenport. She is also Nashville’s first full-time female sports radio personality on 104.5 The Zone.  Davenport has appeared with Eddie George at numerous sports events and was herself a two-time SEC Academic All-American member on the volleyball team at Auburn University.
