The Chick-Fil-A Bowl Challenge, a golf event featuring college head coaches and celebrities from around sports and entertainment, wrapped up earlier today with some familiar faces coming out on top. In total, Chick-Fil-A is donating over $750,000 to the institutions represented at this event. If you don’t already love Chick-Fil-A (and who doesn’t), you now have reason to.
