Harvey Updyke is the Alabama fan known for poisoning the trees at Toomer’s Corner at Auburn. On September 29 Auburn fans can have revenge. According to an ESPN article, Updyke will likely sit in a dunking tank or perhaps take pies to the face at a charity event in Mobile. Updyke’s wife, Elva, said...
quote:

“He thought about it and thought about it,” “His daughter said he needed to do it because it will show that he’s not as big of a nut as some people believe. He told them they can do whatever they want to him if it will raise money for kids.”

T.J. Hodges, an Alabama fan living near Chicago, is organizing the event to help raise money for the family of John Oliver, a boy from outside Mobile who died of cancer in July. Hodges started a nonprofit organization, Roses From Linda, after his mother passed away that helps raise money for family members to visit terminally ill patients before they die.

“The Harvey Updyke idea came from me thinking outside the box to raise money for the family,” Hodges said. “I thought I’d take a chance and see if Harvey was interested in helping, and he said he’d do whatever we wanted.”

Updyke’s wife said he realizes Auburn fans probably will show up at the Mobile charity event to take a shot at him. “He knows there’s going to be a lot of Auburn fans there, but he doesn’t care,” Elva Updyke said. “He’s 65 years old. What are they going to do to him? They’ll have security there.”
I say he backs out. Thoughts?

Donating money to replace tree is more important than donating money to help a poor kid's family that has to deal with the loss of their son.... gotcha, Reb

Due to the nature of the event I hope AU fans just stay away. Hopefully one day he'll run across one in a dark alley though.

He needs to donate the money to Auburn to help replace those trees. If he did that I could see him actually being remorseful.
