Mayors of Tuscaloosa, Auburn Make Charitable Iron Bowl Wager
Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox and Auburn Mayor Ron Anders will once again make a friendly wager on the outcome of Saturday's Iron Bowl, with the losing leader donating $100 to the charity of the winner's choice.
Maddox began the tradition in 2005 with former Auburn mayor Bill Ham and has kept it up every year since. In that time frame, Alabama leads the series 8-7.
As usual, if the Crimson Tide prevails over the Tigers, Anders will make a $100 donation to the charity closest to Maddox's heart, the Tuscaloosa Pre-K Initiative.
If Auburn manages the upset, Maddox will donate $100 to United Way of Lee County.
“I’m excited to continue this friendly wager that makes the outcome of the Iron Bowl a win-win for Tuscaloosa and Auburn,” Maddox said. “The Tuscaloosa Pre-K Initiative and the United way of Lee County are both important causes, and I’m glad to help bring them some recognition. May the best team win, and Roll Tide!”
