MADISON, WI, December 7, 2011 – This holiday shopping season AT&T is working with rookie Randall Cobb to help fight hunger. Cobb will be on hand to sign photographs at the East and West Madison AT&T stores on December 13. AT&T will also be collecting canned goods for St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry “Helping Our Neighbors in Need” food program during the events.

“AT&T is thrilled to welcome rookie sensation Randall Cobb to Madison as we fight hunger this holiday season,” said AT&T Wisconsin President Scott VanderSanden. “Our employees work tirelessly to serve our customers across the state and invest heavily in our community. Special events like these are another great way to give back this holiday season.”

The AT&T East store is located at 3902 E. Washington Avenue, and Randall Cobb will be there from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm. He will then make an appearance at the AT&T West store, located at 406 S. Gammon Road, from 3:30 pm to 5 pm. As part of the events, consumers can check out all of AT&T’s holiday discounts and enter to win giveaways for the new Samsung Galaxy 8.9T tablet and the new Samsung Focus ST smartphone at each store.

“We are pleased to welcome Randall Cobb to our Madison locations for these special appearances,” said Dave Fine, VP/GM for AT&T in Illinois and Wisconsin. “Not only will this give local fans the opportunity to meet the wide receiver, it also provides the opportunity for them to be a part of a charitable event during the holidays by donating canned goods to fight hunger in the Madison area.”

There are 21 AT&T-owned stores in Wisconsin. AT&T’s products and services are also available at a number of authorized dealer and national retail locations.
