Vanderbilt’s annual Dore Jam, an interactive event to kick off the 2011-12 athletic year, will take place 4-6 p.m., Aug. 7, the university announced Wednesday.

First-year football coach James Franklin, his assistant coaches and members of the football team will be available for photographs and autographs. Food and drinks will be provided along with activities for children.

“We have added some additional activities for the kids this year so that the whole family can be better entertained,” Director of Sales and Marketing Steve Walsh said. “This is a great opportunity for Commodore fans to meet the team and our new coaches in a fun setting.”

The event takes place at the football practice facility adjacent to the athletic offices.
