Terrell Owens, Other Stars, To Attend Brittany Jackson Dinner Party In Ooltewah To Benefit Pat Summitt Foundation

Thursday, May 3, 2012

 Former Lady Vol, WNBA player and television correspondent Brittany Jackson along with her Basketball Academy is hosting a dinner party at the private estate of Dr. Scott and Angie
Hodges. The dinner party, taking place in Ooltewah on Saturday, May 12, is to benefit her former coach’s charity, the Pat Summitt Foundation. It will be at the private estate of Dr. Scott and Angie Hodges.

Because of the recent news regarding Pat Summitt’s Alzheimers and her retirement as coach from her alma mater the University of Tennessee, Ms.

Jackson said she decided to host an event to both honor Coach Summitt and benefit the foundation.

Brittany Jackson’s First Annual Evening with the Stars includes an evening hosted by friend and
NFL star Terrell Owens, along with special guests NFL Titans Tony Brown and Nate Washington, NFL Saints Lance Moore and Roman Harper, NFL player Terdell Sands and Kyries Hebert, NFL Browns player Sidney Tarver, NFL Lions player Jacques Mclendon, NBA player Devean George, WNBA players Chamique Holdsclaw, Ann Strother, Angela Davidson and recording artist Bubba Sparxx.

Brittany Jackson’s Basketball Academy’s Evening with the Stars closes out the official Brittany Jackson Academy’s All Star Weekend Basketball Camp taking place at Bradley High School in Cleveland on Friday, May 11, and Saturday, May 12. The basketball camp, which is designed to develop and enhance a player’s mental and physical performance and overall game, is for children (boys and girls) grades 2nd-8th. It will also include interaction with all the professional athletes attending the charity dinner. 

Ms. Jackson said, “This year I chose to have my event benefit The Pat Summitt Foundation because of how much Pat Summitt has given back to me as well as to my entire
community. It was an honor to play for Pat and call her my coach but the greatest lessons I learned from her were off the court. She believed in me and taught me about character, discipline and always giving my all. So this year’s event holds a special place in my heart because I am able to step up along with this community and give back to Pat! I want to thank some of the major sponsors who also stepped up with me including the Hodges family, the Hampton and Holiday Inn of Chattanooga, Tarver Distributing Company, MedAssets, Mark
Swafford, Dr. Jay E Jolley, the Stephas Family, HD Concepts, Jason Abrams, Brown Chiropractic Center, Crawfords Pharmacy, Lexus of Chattanooga, Pioneer Credit, Logan-Thompson at Law, Check into Cash, and Allison Hannah Agency.”
