Sponsorships Still Available for Caney Fork Red Cross Breakfast

The Caney Fork Chapter of the American Red Cross is hosting their Inaugural Breakfast of Champions on Wednesday, May 8th beginning at 8:00 a.m. at Caney Fork Electric and company sponsorships are still available. MTSU Lady Raiders Basketball Coach, Rick Insell, will be the keynote speaker for the event.

“I would like to thank all of our sponsors and those in the community who will be attending our inaugural Breakfast of Champions event,” said Chapter Executive, Kathy Nesmith. “The generous donations given through this Breakfast will allow us to continue helping our community prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters to help when our neighbors need us most.”

With six NCAA Tournament appearances, five All-Americans and three WNBA Draft picks in seven seasons, there is no denying the success head women's basketball coach Rick Insell has brought to Middle Tennessee. In his seven years, he has established a track record unlike any other in the Blue Raiders' rich women's basketball history, while also creating lofty expectations by taking the program to the next level.

The event will be chaired by local board members, Jim Zlaten and Ivey Hillis. All proceeds will benefit the Caney Fork Chapter of the American Red Cross. Corporate sponsorships from $5,000 - $250 are still available. For more information or to RSVP to the event please contact Kathy NeSmith at
