Nick’s Kids Avenue street renaming celebration
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The City of Tuscaloosa and Nick’s Kids Foundation hosted a parade and ceremony for the Nick’s Kids Avenue Jubilee on Thursday, Aug. 5, celebrating the renaming of 28th Avenue to “Nick’s Kids Avenue.” The Nick’s Kids Foundation Luncheon, annually held in August, was canceled due to safety concerns during the ongoing pandemic.
Since Nick and Terry Saban arrived in Tuscaloosa in 2007, nearly $9 million has been given to more than 300 deserving charities and organizations throughout the state and surrounding areas.
The Nick’s Kids Foundation is the official charity of Nick and Terry Saban. The Nick’s Kids Foundation is a 501©3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and resources for deserving organizations throughout the state of Alabama and Southeast. As the official charity of Nick Saban and his family, Nick and Terry invest their time and energy hosting luncheons, golf tournaments, scrimmages and other events to benefit the cause. The proceeds are given in support of children, family, teacher and student causes.
Some of the Nick’s Kids Foundation projects include 18 for 18 Home Building Project with Habitat for Humanity, the Nick’s Kids Playgrounds along the Tuscaloosa Riverwalk and the Alberta School of Performing Arts, as well as the Teacher’s Excellence Awards Luncheon.
