On October 18, Reeves plus three friends will attend the University of Georgia’s homecoming game against Vanderbilt University at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga.

Reeves, a student at Gainesville State College in Watkinsville, Ga., heard about the Path2College 529 Plan VIP Fan Experience Sweepstakes through Facebook.

“I think this Sweepstakes was a great way for people to learn about the Path2College 529 Plan,” said Reeves. “I wish my parents had known about this program before I started college.”
