BRISTOL, Tenn., Jan. 18, 2015 – Alumni of King University are invited to gather together for an evening dinner cruise aboard the Volunteer Princess luxury yacht on the Tennessee River in Knoxville, Tenn. The cruise will take place on Saturday, Feb. 20 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Boarding will begin at 6 p.m.
