Giving Back

 

The BUBS 73 Foundation was established to honor a man that was known and loved by many. Chad Hildebrand, known as Bubba, was a generous, kind and lovable person. It is the mission of the BUBS 73 Foundation to continue this generosity throughout the Vicksburg community in various ways. We will be focusing on the needs and welfare of the children as well as supporting Vicksburg athletic programs.

Bubba attended Vicksburg schools his entire life, participating in many sports throughout the years. These sports included football, basketball, baseball and tennis. After school Bubba took to the softball fields for a few years and was also an avid golfer on the local courses.

Bubba was the oldest of 5 boys in his family. After graduation, he continued to attend Vicksburg sporting events supporting his younger brothers throughout the years. Bubba coached Rocket football for several years and served as assistant football coach for the freshman team one season.

 

On behalf of the Bubs73Foundation, we would like to thank every person who has donated their time and money to support our cause. Because of you we have been priviliged to pass on your generous contributions in Chad "Bubba" Hildebrand's name to following organizations within the Vicksbug communinty. Thank you! Smile
