HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Auburn football legend Cam Newton will make a trip to the Rocket City this summer. The 2010 Heisman Trophy winner will serve as a guest at the annual “Leaders and Legends” Dinner. The annual event, which is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Boys & Girls Club of North Alabama, will take place on Thursday, July 13th at the Von Braun Center.
This fundraising event is critical to the success of the Boys & Girls Club organization, which depends on proceeds from the event to continue its mission to inspire and enable local youth to reach for their potential.

Boys & Girls Clubs in communities across North Alabama provide a safe place to go after school and during the summer for youth ages 5-18. We fill the gap between school and home with life-changing programs, experiences, and mentorship programs that focus on three core areas of development: ACADEMIC SUCCESS / HEALTHY LIFESTYLES / CHARACTER & CITIZENSHIP
Newton played eight games for the Panthers that season after one season with the New England Patriots in 2020. He also started 148 games for the Panthers from 2011-2019 after Carolina drafted Newton with the No. 1 pick in 2011. Newton is currently the only player in NFL history with at least 30,000 passing yards and 5,000 rushing yards. He's rushed for at least 500 yards in all but two of his seasons where he started at least 14 games. Newton won NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2011 and NFL MVP in 2015.
