NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Tickets have been moving fast for the 11th Annual "Talk With the Titans" Dinners to be held July 24, 25 and 26 at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville.
Houston Chronicle sports writer John McClain and 104.5 The Zone's George Plaster will host the three-day event, which once again benefits the Charles Davis Foundation.
The entertaining three evenings of exclusive behind-the-scenes Titans stories and anecdotes include a five-course meal and pictures made with the featured guests.
Newcomers to the schedule this year include offensive coordinator Chris Palmer and defensive coordinator Jerry Gray. The two coaches will be featured together July 25, discussing their coaching philosophies and how they will incorporate the team's young talent like Jake Locker, Akeem Ayers and Derrick Morgan.
Fans will also have the chance to bid on unique Titans memorabilia in a silent auction that will benefit the Charles Davis Foundation.
"I would not have been able to host these dinners for the last 11 years if not for the contributions from the Titans. I can't tell you how much I appreciate their involvement throughout the years," McClain said. "These dinners provide a chance for fans to say goodbye to Jeff Fisher, hello to Chris Palmer and Jerry Gray, and good luck to Mike Munchak and Mike Reinfeldt."
Fans can order tickets by calling 615-254-0396. Additional information is available on the Charles Davis Foundation web site at www.charlesdavisfoundation.org., or by e-mailing Ora Kay Thedford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
