Annual Ultimate Tailgate Party

Ultimate Tailgate Party 2018

September 29, 2018  –  3:30 pm


Our annual Tailgate fundraiser is one event you won’t want to miss! We host the event in the East Club Level of Neyland Stadium. This gives UT fans the opportunity to cheer on the Vols while supporting the Hearing and Speech Foundation.

Guests enjoy a lavish buffet and handcrafted brews provided by Woodruff Brewery. Guests have the opportunity to bid on items in the silent auction, which vary from UT gear and memorabilia to dinners and trips. Stay up-to-date with the latest news about our annual Tailgate fundraiser and see pictures from previous years on our HSF Ultimate Tailgate Party Facebook page.

MOTORCOACH TRANSPORTATION will be available from Midland Shopping Center in Alcoa, to the stadium.  Limited seats are available for $10 per person.  To save your seat be sure to click “Buy Tickets” below or call April at (865) 982-8557.  The bus will depart 1.5 hours before kick-off!  Event Parking will be available in the G10 lot outside Gate 26 of the stadium.

Better Hearing & Speech Month

May is Better Hearing and Speech Month! Started by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, this nation-wide celebration provides opportunities to raise awareness about communication disorders and promote treatment that can improve the quality of life for those who experience problems with speaking, understanding, or hearing.

During the month of May, our goal is to raise awareness about communication disorders and how we empower people in East Tennessee to live their lives to the fullest.
