ALL-SPORTS REUNION RECAP

The 10th VAF All-Sports Reunion was held September 23-25, 2016 in Charlottesville. Over 500 UVA student-athlete alumni and their guests attended events and games throughout the weekend.

Featured highlights of the weekend were the football game and All-Sports Tailgate. The Virginia Athletics Foundation (VAF) provided complimentary football tickets to all returning student-athlete alumni and organized a tailgate, which was held prior to the football game.

Approximately 300 attendees enjoyed a breakfast spread by Graves Mountain Lodge, musical entertainment by Chris Grooms, lawn games and a lounge area. The lively atmosphere provided a fun start to the day for student-athlete alumni and their families.

In addition to the football game and tailgate, several sports hosted alumni games, open practices, receptions and gatherings for alumni to reconnect with team members and coaches. VAF is appreciative of our Cavaliers for Life for their commitment to Virginia Athletics.
