Tim Tebow: A quick snap for the Epilepsy Foundation

If Tim Tebow responds as quickly on the field as he did for the Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado, the Denver Broncos are going to be very happy with their rookie quarterback.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner, chosen by the Broncos in the first-round 2010 NFL draft, arrived in Denver last Thursday and on Friday he had autographed — and delivered — a football to be included in the auction that was part of La Dolce Vita, a May 1 gala that raised money for the Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado’s Jason Fleishman Summer Camp.

The donation is the result of event chair Candy Palazzo’s friendship with Kelly McCoy, whose husband, Mike, is the team’s offensive coordinator. Candy and Kelly play tennis together and so Candy felt comfortable asking her friend if there was any chance of getting the much-talked-about player to make a donation to the benefit.

“Kelly said she’d be happy to find out — and within 24 hours of his arrival, I was picking up the autographed ball,” a happy Palazzo told us as fans hovered over the bid sheet during the gala’s social hour.
I’ll have a complete report, including how much the ball went for, in my Inside Line column that will appear in Wednesday’s Denver Post.
