Patagonia Vice President Rick Ridgeway will be the featured speaker at the annual Legacy Luncheon for the Parks benefiting Legacy Parks Foundation at 11:30 on October 7th at UT’s Cherokee Farm on Alcoa Highway. The luncheon is presented by Pilot Flying J and sponsored by Texas Instruments, UCOR, Bob’s Trails, Trees & Gardens, Bryant Research, Gulf and Ohio Railway, Robin Easter Design, SouthEast Bank, The Trust Company, and the University of Tennessee Medical Center.
The annual luncheon funds the work of Legacy Parks Foundation to preserve open space, expand parks, and improve the overall quality of life and economic vitality of our community. It is the Foundation’s only major fundraising event of the year.
