Pam Tebow, mom of football player Tim, will speak Tuesday in Plant City.

The Tebows are set to make a splash next week in Tampa Bay, but not on the football field.

Pam Tebow, the mother of Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow, will be in Plant City on Tuesday night to deliver the keynote speech at the Pregnancy Care Center's annual fundraiser.

Then Thursday, Bob Tebow, Pam's husband, will be at the Coliseum in St. Petersburg for the 11th annual YMCA Mayor's Prayer Breakfast. Tickets for that event are at (727) 895-9622, ext. 221.

The Tebows are long known for their Christian outreach work. Tim Tebow was born in the Philippines while his parents were missionaries there.

Doctors urged Mrs. Tebow to undergo an abortion because of the difficult pregnancy, but she shunned their advice. She has since become a popular antiabortion advocate, and two years ago during the Super Bowl she and her son promoted that cause.

The Plant City event is set for 6 p.m. at Hillsborough Community College's John R. Trinkle Center, 1206 N Park Road. Fred's Southern Gourmet Catering will provide dinner. Tickets are $40. Call (813) 759-0886.
