Alpha Omicron Pi will host their 39th annual barbecue before the

Tennessee-Georgia football game to raise money for scholarships and


On Saturday at 5 p.m. in Circle Park, a barbecue dinner, which includes a

Buddy's Barbecue sandwich, chips, a Little Debbie Snack and Coca-Cola

beverage, can be purchased for $6.

"It's going to be a traditional barbecue," said Shelley King, public

relations chair for the barbecue.

The Back Porch Rockers, a bluegrass band, will provide entertainment for

the barbecue.

King said the barbecue is not just for the Greeks, but for anyone who wants

to eat barbecue and listen to the band.

"It's going to be a really festive atmosphere," King said.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Arthritis Research, a local chapter of

the Arthritis Foundation, which is AOPi's philanthropy.

Some of the money will be given to the Harriet Greve Scholarship Fund,

which gives two UT students a total of $2,500 annually.

King said although they are only prepared to serve 4,000 dinners, people

have traditionally come to the area to hang out before the game since it is

so close to Neyland Stadium.
