UT Students and Latitude 35 Restaurant Support 9/11 Kids

By Jeaneane Payne

Public Relations students at the University of Tennessee have teamed up with Latitude 35 Restaurant to support children who lost parents in 9/11.

A kickoff event has been set for Thursday, September 1, 2011 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Latitude 35 on Market Square. The event is in support of Tuesday's Children, a non-profit family service organization that has made a long term commitment to every individual impacted by the events of September 11, 2001.

The September 1st event begins a three-month campaign to raise funds for Tuesday's Children.

Special guests will include WBIR correspondent Erin Donovan and former UT football player Derrick Furlow.

"The events of 9/11 have impacted so many Americans and so many children. People want to help, but they may not know how. This semester my students and I are committed to promoting Tuesday's Children as a venue for our caring Americans to make donations. The money goes directly to programs that help children who lost one or both parents as a result of 9/11 attacks or other global terrorist tragedies," said Dr. Lisa Fall, the University of Tennessee associate professor who teaches the public relations case study class that is responsible for the project. "Our message is simple: please make a donation to Tuesday's Children; every contribution counts."

For more information about Tuesday's Children and to make a donation, go to: Please indicate "University of Tennessee fundraiser" when making your contribution.
