Legacy Parks Luncheon at Johnson

September 27, 2019

We’re excited to host this year’s Legacy Parks Luncheon on our Knoxville Campus!

Each year the Legacy Parks Foundation holds a special fundraising luncheon, and we’re honored that this year’s event will be on our campus on the banks of the French Broad River. Hundreds of local community leaders will visit our campus and enjoy lunch and a presentation by keynote speaker David McLain, a National Geographic photographer and a member of the Blue Zone exploration team.

The Legacy Parks Foundation is an East Tennessee nonprofit organization working to ensure that our community enjoys exceptional recreational opportunities and natural beauty and open spaces, and that these assets exist for generations to come. They work collaboratively to preserve our area’s extraordinary natural resources and to expand parks, create trails, and increase access to our rivers. Since 2007, Legacy Parks has raised over six million dollars for parks and open space, helped conserve 1,000 acres of forest and farmland, and added over 600 acres of parkland in Knox County.

We are looking forward to hosting this special event, and we’re grateful to Legacy Parks’ executive director, Carol Evans, for serving on our Greater Knoxville Advisory Board!
