AO Tourisms 'Favorite Fans'
Stephanie Hudman of Ooltewah, Tenn., won the Auburn-Opelika Tourism Bureau's Baseball Weekend Getaway Package. Stephanie and her friends (pictured left) came to Auburn after winning 4 tickets to the Auburn v. Alabama Baseball Game, a gift card to Toomer's Drug, an AU Prize Pack and overnight accommodations in the area! Stephanie and her friends went to Toomer's where they enjoyed lunch, lemonade and limeade! Congrats Stephanie and thanks for visiting!
The Porter Family
Carter Porter, pictured left, and Marshall Porter, below, are Aubie's biggest fans! After several attempts to get a photo with the lovable mascot over the years, they were finally able to catch him at the Auburn v Arkansas Baseball game in March.
The Porter's won baseball tickets through the Tourism Bureau. The boys parents, Steve and Cindy Porter, are both 1999 graduates of Auburn University. The boys grandparents, Karen and Bill Porter, who live in Auburn, showed Carter and Marshall a great time on their Spring Break visit to the area. The boys attended the baseball game, painted at Sips and Strokes, attended the St. Patrick's Day celebration in Opelika at the Irish Bred Pub, shopped at Old Navy, ate at Johnny Brusco's, Mellow Mushroom, Louie's, and had ice cream at Bruster's and Marble Slab Creamery...never a dull moment!
The Urbanowski Family

This 'favorite fans' family drove to Auburn from Texas to watch the 2011 BCS National Championship so they could "watch the game in the best environment outside Arizona."
