Light the Night

KNOXVILLE, Tenn(WVLT)--It was a great night for the 13th annual "Light the Night" event at UT's Circle Park.

Bob Kesling and UT Head Basketball Coach Cuonzo Martin were the honorary co-chairs of the event..

Families and friends took park in the little over two mile walk through campus.

Alan Williams walked with Team Philibuster, named for Phil Leadbetter, who's recovering from stem cell treatments in his battle with cancer.

Last year the event raised over $180,000. They were hoping to top that this year.
