The annual John Stanford Grand Slam Fish Fry will return to the Grove at Williamson Place on Monday, October 22nd at 6 p.m.
2018 marks the sixth year that the fish fry has been named in honor of former Blue Raider athletics director and baseball head coach John Stanford.
"Although I have only been here for a short time, I have learned that John Stanford was a tremendous coach and administrator who built this program from the ground up through events like the Fish Fry," Toman said. "We will honor the coaches and players that worked extremely hard to make this program so special and we are looking forward to seeing everyone at the fundraiser."
The Fish Fry will again feature all you can eat fried catfish, Cajun gumbo, hot dogs and more. The Russ & Becky Jeffers Country Band will also return to play this year's event. During live and silent auctions, Blue Raider sports memorabilia items will be available.
Tickets can be purchased in advance for $25, or $30 at the door. Children ages six and under will get in free. Tickets can be purchased either in person at the athletic ticket office located at Gate 1A of Floyd Stadium, on GoBlueRaiders.com, or by calling 615-898-5261.
For more information, please call 615-898-2450. Proceeds from the John Stanford Grand Slam Fish Fry benefit the Blue Raider baseball program.
