We decided to actively support and promote the UT Vols Basketball Coach, Rick Barnes. The University of Tennessee is very fortunate to have Rick Barnes as their Men's Basketball Coach. Rick is in the finalist for the Infiniti Coaches' Charity Challenge; his Charity is The Emerald Youth Foundation in Knoxville, TN; Coach is active in the foundation and is also a board member.
For those who are not familiar with his charity, the foundation improves the lives of children growing up in the city’s most disadvantaged neighborhoods. At the beginning, fewer than 100 children were involved in the foundation’s programs; now the foundation helps transform the lives of 2,400 young people a year.
100,000.00 will be donated, from infiniti, to his charity if he wins; so you can vote once a day from here or at the site below. Not everyone has money to donate to a good cause, but we all have a voice!
We salute the Emerald Youth Foundation for its first 25 years of service to Knoxville!
