Pat Summitt fans are encouraged to wear orange today in support of her. There are some local businesses (Knoxville) taking part and offering some deals when you come in wearing orange. Thus far, these are the ones on the list:
- Marble Slab Creamery, Broadway and Kodak locations—buy an ice cream and get a free mix-in when wearing orange
- Chick-fil-a West Town, Double Drive Thru—Folks wearing orange need to stop by and say "I am a Real Vol" starting at 10:30am. They will give you a free Chick-fil-A sandwich or 8-pack nugget! (Please one offer per Real Vol.)
- Maria on CICT Facebook added that the Chick-fil-a in South Knoxville will also giving away a freebie. “Wear Orange in support of Coach Summitt and you will receive one free item of your choice! Just Tell us you support The Coach!” Thanks for the tip!
- I just saw that Petro’s is taking part in the day, too!! “Petro's is joining the Wear Orange initiative to support Pat Summit. Wear orange this Friday, Aug 26 to show your love and support for our beloved Coach. Come to any Knoxville area Petro's… dressed in orange…and we'll give you a Big Orange Hint-of-Orange® Iced Tea. Mention Wear Orange Day to get your free tea. We love you, Coach Summit!!”
- Along these same lines, I just learned from Tea at the Gallery, “University of Tennessee, Knoxville Student now get 20% off on all things Tea at the Gallery! Come in today for a Grilled Asparagus and Prosciutto Sandwich or cool off with some of our Raspberry Iced Tea!”
