What’s goin on?

You may or may not have heard about the event “An Evening With Head Football Coach Bob Diaco” scheduled for July 29 at Rentschler Field.

Whether you have or haven’t – and are a UConn football fan –  whether you’ve had a chance to meet Diaco or talk to him this is an opportunity you won’t want to miss but be careful – he’s quite a motivator and an excited one at that.

Some of you might want to dust off your cleats after hearing him. There’s a little twist to the event this year, too.

Anyway, here’s the release from UConn on the event put on by the Greater Hartford Chapter of the UConn Alumni Association…. 

The Greater Hartford Chapter of the UConn Alumni Association will host “An Evening With Head Football Coach Bob Diaco” on Tuesday, July 29 at Rentschler Field. Diaco is entering his first year as the Husky head coach and will be making his debut at the group’s annual football kickoff event.

The event begins at 4:45 p.m. when fans can take to the playing field and have a football toss and get their pictures taken. A buffet dinner will then be served in the Club Level at Rentschler Field with a cash bar and silent auction.

Diaco will then address the group, including a question and answer period.

The event is an annual fundraiser for the UConn Alumni Association Greater Hartford Chapter. Proceeds from the dinner have provided thousands of dollars in academic scholarships to undergraduate students and has funded a variety of alumni and student programming events in the Greater Hartford area.

Tickets are priced at $45 for dues paying members of the UConn Alumni Association and $55 for the non-dues paying attendees.
