To show your support for the University of Alabama, head to the Bryant Denny Stadium on August 10th for the 4th Annual Fall Kick-Off Event. Meet at The South Zone, located at 920 W. Paul Bryant Drive, for your chance to show support for the university, as well as run into old classmates, faculty, and other people you know.
Hosted by the Tuscaloosa County Alumni Chapter, the event will start at 6 p.m. and end around 8 p.m. Of course, since there are several great restaurants and bars nearby, you can always move to a different location afterward to continue catching up. Remember, you do not have to be a member of the Tuscaloosa County Alumni Chapter to participate.
Thanks to social media, it is common for college friends to stay in contact. At the Kick-Off, you can set up a time to meet former classmates, and you might even run into people that you have not seen or talked to in years. Either way, you can share stories and laugh at silly things you did while lending your support to a good cause.
Fall Kick-Off Details
This year’s guest speaker is Bobby Humphrey, although you can expect to find several of the university’s coaches there, as well. The organizers put in a lot of time and effort to make this annual event family-friendly, so if you have children and no babysitter, you can bring them along. They will have a blast while getting a glimpse into your past.
A pep rally will kick off the event. From there, door prize drawings will take place every half hour. Admission is only $20 and includes a wonderful barbecue dinner from the popular Hoo’s Q in Tuscaloosa. But wait, there’s more. Your entry fee will also enter your name in a drawing to win two tickets for all of the home games during the 2017 season.
If you are looking for something fun to do in August, a worthwhile event that your entire family will love, this is it. The proceeds from the event will go to the Tuscaloosa County Scholarship Fund, helping students without the financial means, and who meet certain criteria, to attend the University of Alabama.
