Gathering of Angels helps Salvation Army

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Pat Summitt may make quite an impact on the basketball court, but Thursday it was all about her influence off the court.

Summitt was on hand at the annual Gathering of Angels, which supports the Salvation Army's mission by providing funds to five different programs, including men and women's transitional housing and domestic violence shelters.

The Salvation Army is hoping to raise more than $200,000 to help with their efforts.

Workers with the Salvation Army say without donations they would have to shut down some of their programs.

"We have a big program at christmas, and we have our thrift stores, but this, by far in one day, is the biggest fund raiser that we have."

If you would like to donate, call 525-9401.
