Greeneville, Tenn. - The Tourism Department's Sports Council will follow up last year's inaugural luncheon, featuring new ETSU football Coach Carl Torbush, by moving to the hard court for a basketball themed luncheon Wednesday, June 11, from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church. The Tip-Off Luncheon will feature former University of Tennessee and NBA basketball greats Dale Ellis and Reggie Johnson. Ellis and Johnson both capped off All-American careers at Tennessee by becoming first round NBA draft picks and playing professionally for several years. Consumer Credit Union will be the title sponsor for the luncheon, which is being presented by the Sports Council of the Greene County Partnership. Attendees will have the chance to submit questions to Ellis and Johnson, bid on auction items and register for door prizes. Proceeds from this event will assist the Sports Council in its recruiting efforts for future sporting events being sought by Greeneville and Greene County. Tickets for the event are $25 each and will include admission to a meet-and-greet with Ellis and Johnson, lunch and a question and answer session with the sports stars. Tickets can be purchased at the Greene County Partnership office located at 115 Academy Street. Lunch sponsorships and reserved tables are available.
