First-year football coach Derek Dooley will be one of the featured guests Thursday at the 44th Annual University of Tennessee All Sports Picnic at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena.

“I am looking forward to my first Davidson County Picnic,” Dooley said.  “I have heard wonderful things about the event and it gives me another opportunity to reach out to our great Vol fans of Middle Tennessee.”

 The evening is scheduled to begin with a silent auction at 5:30 p.m. The main program begins at 7 p.m.

In addition to Dooley, members of the athletics department staff and the men’s and women’s basketball teams will take part, and several UT student-athletes will be available for photos and autographs.

Proceeds from the event, which is hosted by the Davidson County Chapter of the University of Tennessee Alumni Association, support academic scholarship funding for students from Davidson County attending The University of Tennessee.

Tickets are available at the door for $20 per person.
