A Friday night gathering at the St. Pete Pier with former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow and local nonprofit organizations has been called off because of concerns about crowds gathering during a pandemic.

“In response to Pinellas County’s emergency order with new restrictions on outdoor events, this event has been postponed. Organizers are looking to the fall for our new date,” said Michelle Lowther, director of Church Family Inc., one of the nonprofit organizations that had collaborated with the Heisman Trophy winner for the event at the Pier on Friday night.

The football and baseball star was to headline a night of musical artists and speakers and interview-style conversations with Tebow and friends. Two local nonprofits, Stop the Movement and Whatever It Takes Inc., were collaborating on the event.
