Annual Summitt fundraiser is Sept. 26
The second annual “Evening for Pat” — a fundraiser for the The Pat Summitt Foundation — will be held Sept. 26 from 5-7 p.m. at the Charles Hand Farm in Cedar Hill. Summitt, a 1970 graduate of Cheatham County Central High School, resigned in 2012 as the head women's basketball coach at the University of Tennessee after being diagnosed with early on-set dementia a year earlier. Tickets for the fundraiser are $25 and includes dinner, dessert and drinks. Tickets are limited. The event will also feature an anticipated visit from Summitt, a silent auction and entertainment. For ticket information, call Alison Hurt with Avalon Hospice at 931-561-7915; Cindy Hancock of Oasis In-Home Care at 931-266-4441 or 270-839-2706; or Denise Rangel at 931-436-0979. The Charles Hand Farm is on Ross Road (located off Interstate 24, exit 19, Maxey Road). Summitt is the all-time winningest coach in NCAA men's or women's basketball with 1,098 victories. She led the Lady Vols to eight national championships, 18 NCAA Final Fours and a combined 32 SEC regular season and tournament titles during her 38-year career at Tennessee.
