Tallahassee, Fla. –
On September 24, Florida State University honored head football coach Bobby Bowden with the unveiling of the Bowden Statue in front of the Moore Athletic Center. Fans now have a chance to own a piece of the Bobby Bowden legacy by purchasing an exquisite piece of art honoring coach Bowden.
Through Seminole Boosters, Inc., fans can purchase a bust commemorating nearly every record-setting victory by coach Bowden. Following the unveiling of the Bowden Statue, Seminole Boosters raised over $200,000 by auctioning 15 busts commemorating 15 of coach Bowden’s milestone victories, with the proceeds going to the Bowden Legacy Endowment, which funds the Bobby Bowden Legacy Scholarship.
A cost of $5,000, each limited edition bust will be minted by the factory and come with a certificate of authenticity. Once each of the Bowden victory busts has been purchased, the mold will be broken and no longer available. A portion of the purchase will got towards the Bobby Bowden Legacy Scholarship.
There is only one bust per win and they are sold on a first-come, first serve basis. For more information, call Seminole Boosters at 850-644-3484.
