Legacy Luncheon for the Parks

Under a large tent on the newly acquired Wood property in Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness, nearly 700 business and civic leaders and outdoor recreation supporters came together at last week’s annual Legacy Luncheon for the Parks. Senator Bob Corker spoke about the importance of recreation opportunities and quality of life to a community.

Presented by Pilot Flying J and sponsored by South East Bank, Texas Instruments, and Robin Easter Design, the fundraiser celebrates the accomplishments of Legacy Parks and its partner organizations in establishing East Tennessee as a recreation destination. “I don’t know of a place that has more opportunity in that regard than East Tennessee,” said Corker.

Local recreation outfitters and retailers lined the entry to the event and the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club built a pumptrack that attracted a few riders – even one in a business suit!

Thanks to all of our sponsors
