ORANGE JU CE Tennessee Fund

Vol 16 • Issue 6

February 2012

Football Training Center Update Construction of Tennessee’s new Football Training Center is progressing well, and the new facility is scheduled to open this fall. The four-story expansion will house state-of-the-art meeting rooms, coaches offices, a locker room, strength and conditioning room, training room, players lounge, and recruiting room and lounge. As we head toward the home stretch of this project, we are looking for any Tennessee fans interested in getting more involved with and supporting this campaign. One of the special opportunities that exists is to sponsor a locker in the new facility. Locker sponsorships require a pledge of $15,000 that can be paid over five years and includes a personalized plaque that will be displayed with each locker. If you have not checked it out already, you can view a virtual tour video of the new facility at www.tennesseefund.com. You will also find more details on the Locker Campaign on our website, including the opportunity to view a virtual representation of a plaque with your information and personal message inscribed on it. If you or anyone you know are interested in learning more about how to get involved with this project, please contact the Tennessee Fund at 865-974-1218!

March 1 Donation Deadline! Don’t forget that Thursday, March 1 is the Tennessee Fund donation deadline and also marks the end of our 2012 Vol Rep Drive Year! You will receive credit for any gifts made by this deadline in the 2012 Vol Rep Competition. Also, remember that any donor who makes the same annual gift or greater in 2012 as was made in 2011 is eligible for a 20 priority point bonus if the gift is received by March 1. You can log into your online Donornet account at www.tennesseefund.com to view a list of your donor assignments, including which Tennessee Fund members and prospects you work with who have not yet made their 2012 gift!

Vol Rep Rewards Ceremony This year’s Vol Rep Rewards Ceremony will be held on April 21 at 12 pm ET in the Tennessee Terrace inside Neyland Stadium. This is a time for all of our Vol Reps to gather before the Orange & White Game and celebrate the success of the completed fundraising campaign. We hope you make plans to join us and stay to watch the Orange & White Game afterwards!
