|"It's been over 58 years since my first attempt to get fellow Gators fans to "stand up and holler.” Even today, my enthusiasm for the Gators has not changed!" says tournament namesake George "Mr. 2-Bits" Edmondson.
ABOUT MR. 2-BITS SCHOLARSHIP:
Mr. 2-Bits Scholarship, Inc. a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors was started with the help of several passionate Gators and the assistance of Gator Boosters and UAA. The proceeds from the weekend of events will fund scholarships for the UF Spirit Teams (cheerleaders, Dazzlers, and Mascots). Over twenty-five years ago George Edmondson funded a scholarship endowment for the University of Florida Spirit Teams as a way to financially assist dedicated Gator Cheerleaders. These funds are all but gone. To carry on this incredible Gator Spirit and the tireless efforts of all three Spirit Teams at UF, your help is needed.
