The University of Tennessee Athletics Department has announced a unique "Hoops for the Holidays" ticket promotion through which fans can purchase discounted tickets to select Tennessee men's and women's home basketball games and have those tickets donated to charitable organizations that work directly with local well deserving children.
This opportunity to purchase $7 tickets to Vols and/or Lady Vols games will be available throughout December and January. On behalf of the purchaser, UTAD will then donate tickets to either the Emerald Youth Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tennessee or the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley to the game(s) chosen by each charity.
If they desire, the purchaser can designate which specific organizations they would like their tickets to go to.
To take advantage of this unique opportunity to provide an enjoyable experience for local youth, please click here or on the graphic above.
Additionally, fans can purchase tickets and/or designate their ticket gift to other charities over the phone by calling 865-946-7000.
