OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A coalition of businesses will donate $42,500 to a youth foundation for the two ''Omaha'' shouts by Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning that could be heard during the Super Bowl.

Nebraska's largest city was in the national spotlight recently as a result of Manning's use of ''Omaha'' as a code word when he calls an audible before the ball is snapped. To say thanks for the shout-outs and free publicity, the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce coordinated a fundraising effort for Manning's foundation for at-risk youth.

The chamber said Monday that 17 local businesses agreed to donate $2,500 each for a Super Bowl total of $42,500. Eight businesses also donated $24,800 for Manning's 31 ''Omahas'' in the AFC championship game.

The ''PeyBack Foundation'' is receiving a total of $67,300.
