BIRMINGHAM, Ala. ----- The UAB Athletics Department and Blazer Boosters will host the annual Belles & Whistles Dinner and Fundraiser on Thursday, April 25. The event is scheduled for 6:00 pm and will be held on the floor of Bartow Arena.

The keynote speakers will be UAB Athletics Director Brian Mackin, UAB Women's Tennis Head Coach Lisa Jackson, current UAB track and field student-athlete Rachel Harley, and Alicia Huey, President of the Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders and an avid supporter of UAB Athletics. The emcee for this year's dinner will be Lenora Pate, a lawyer with Sirote & Permutt, P.C. and a graduate of UAB.

All event proceeds will equally benefit female UAB student-athlete scholarships and facility improvements for women's sports. UAB Athletics presently sponsors 11 female sports (approximately 135 student-athletes) which results in more than $2.1 million in annual scholarship costs.
