The 2013 Legacy Luncheon for the Parks was presented by Humana and sponsored by Pilot Flying J, Carol R. Johnson Associates, Gulf and Ohio Railway, and Robin Easter Design. A crowd of 700 attended the luncheon at the beautiful Seven Islands Wildlife Refuge. Two exciting announcements were made by keynote speaker, Governor Bill Haslam — Seven Islands Wildlife Refuge would become Tennessee’s 56th state park and it’s first state birding park and that Legacy Parks Foundation has been awarded a $200,000 RTP grant for trail construction in Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness.
The annual Legacy Luncheon for the Parks celebrates the work of Legacy Parks Foundation in preserving open space, expanding parks in improving the overall quality of life and economic vitality of our community. It is hosted by the mayors of Knoxville and Knox County and attended by more than 700 business and civic leaders. Prior speakers include Heath Shuler, the Honorable Senator Howard Baker, Pat Summitt, Governor Haslam, legendary mountaineer Peter Hillary and adventurer Erik Weihenmeyer.
The annual luncheon is traditional held in October but the date is flexible and coordinated with our speaker’s schedule. The luncheon is casual, held in a park or unique open space to truly immerse the guests in the outdoors and all of the great potential for our region.
