Saints owner makes major donation to the NFL Hall of Fame
New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson has pledged $11 million to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which is the largest contribution by any individual in the Hall’s 51-year history, according to ESPN.
Ten million dollars will go toward renovating Fawcett Stadium, which will be renamed “Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium,” the first step in a “master plan” for major upgrades and expansion of the Hall of Fame Village.
Benson also pledged an additional $1 million to the Hall of Fame’s Legends Landing Program, a new mixed-use residence that includes room for retired players and Hall of Famers.
This is an awesome gesture, look at the bright side it is tax season….
