Weekend To Do List, August 23-25, 2019
When: Saturday, August 24th, 1pm-3pm
Where: Mast General Store / 402 South Gay St, Knoxville
Everybody's favorite mascot, Smokey, will be visiting the Mast store. You can meet him and the UT Cheer Squad and help Smokey support his friends at H.A.L.T: Humans and Animals Learning Together. H.A.L.T. pairs dogs needing a forever home with youth who need a purpose. The result is dogs that have basic training to make adoption more likely and youngsters who can take pride in having accomplished something important.
Make a donation to take your photo with Smokey. Bring your family and friends! Photos will be taken by Michele Lewellyn Photography.
They will also have football cutouts that make fun photos, too, so don't forget your camera!
