Patagonia Vice President Rick Ridgeway will be the featured speaker at the annual Legacy Luncheon for the Parks benefiting Legacy Parks Foundation October 7th at UT’s Cherokee Farm on Alcoa Highway. The luncheon is presented by Pilot and sponsored by UCOR, Gulf and Ohio Railway, Texas Instruments, and Robin Easter Design.

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.

Rick Ridgeway is Patagonia’s Vice President of Environmental Affairs where he oversees vanguard environmental and sustainability initiatives. In addition to business, Rick is recognized as a mountaineer and adventurer, making the first American ascent of K2.  He has produced and directed several documentary films, written dozens of magazine articles and six books. National Geographic recently honored him with its “Lifetime Achievement in Adventure” award.
