The Front Page Follies is an annual roast in which a cast of journalists, community members and a sprinkling of cameo appearances poke fun at newsmakers and events that amused us during the previous year. All ticket sales benefit journalism education through scholarships.
Ticket proceeds go toward an endowment fund at the University of Tennessee intended to be self-perpetuating, generating funds for the scholarships in perpetuity. Our goal, which is in sight, is to fund two endowments of $25,000 each. Income from the Follies also funds a scholarship for a student at Pellissippi State Community College who plans a career in journalism.
If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund without attending the auction, you may do so via our PayPal account: Auction Donation.
