(WBIR - Near Neyland Stadium) Before the Vols took on Western Kentucky on Saturday, some young fans from across East Tennessee got a real treat.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tennessee held a tailgate before the game for Bigs and Littles thanks to a grant from Peyton Manning's Peyback foundation.

Program director, Kara Finger, said it was especially significant because a lot of the Littles have never been to a football game before even though some live within five minutes of Neyland Stadium.

"It gives everybody a chance to come together, enjoy each other's company and get to know other people volunteering with the same organization," Finger said.
