Each year, the Chick-fil-A Bowl makes multiple charitable gifts throughout the course of the year.

It was also the third straight year in which the Bowl has given over $1 million in donations. The Chick-fil-A Bowl remains the number one bowl in the nation in terms of charitable giving.
"Being an Atlanta based company, we see the great work Chick-fil-A Bowl does each year in promoting service and giving throughout the community," said Brooks Smith, President and CEO of InComm. "We are proud to make this donation of $7,500. We contend that Vanilla Visa Gift Cards make the perfect gift for any occasions -- including giving back."
"We look forward to a great game between the Florida State Seminoles and the South Carolina Gamecocks and wish the players, families and fans the best of luck."
"We appreciate InComm's participation in the Chick-fil-A Bowl," said Gary Stokan, President & CEO, Chick-fil-A Bowl. "Being an organization that brings over $50 million in economic impact to Atlanta, it is always nice when a fellow local company shows support and joins our efforts."
The Chick-fil-A Bowl will be held at the Georgia Dome on New Years Eve in Atlanta, GA.
