Attend Bodo’s Breakfast of Champions

More than once I’ve heard The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions described as a gift that keeps on giving. Indeed, even after the bids created more than 315,000 meals for the area’s hungry, benefits have continued.

The latest example is the generosity of the team who won the auction for Bodo’s Breakfast of Champions – an over-the-top brunch for forty guests with four current UVa coaches with national titles in their sports: Brian Boland (men’s tennis), Brian O’Connor (baseball), George Gelnovatch (men’s soccer), and Julie Myers (women’s lacrosse).

With a bid of $2,400, Charlottesville resident David Weiss and friends won the auction. But, instead of filling the guest list solely with their friends, they’ve decided to make ten slots available to the general public in exchange for a minimum $50 donation to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. These donations will go on top of the one the winning group already made, meaning more money for the food bank and at least 2,000 more meals for the area’s hungry.

The brunch is Sunday, January 29, at 10 am at Weiss’ home. In addition to hobnobbing with NCAA champions, guests will enjoy a fabulous buffet of Bodo’s bagels, smoked salmon, spreads, and more, plus cider from Potter’s Craft Cider and organic juice from Lumi, including, of course, Wahoo Orange. Plus, acclaimed photographer Tom McGovern will be on hand to capture it all. Guests are even welcome to stay after the brunch to watch that day’s 1 pm televised men’s basketball game between UVa and defending national champions Villanova. A full day of champions.

The ten slots are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are sure to sell out fast. To book yours, email and state the amount of your donation, minimum $50. Good luck!
