The 2015 Legacy Luncheon for the Parks celebrating our 10th Anniversary is sold out, and for the first time 1,000 people will attend the annual fundraiser.

With Cheryl Strayed, the bestselling author of the memoir Wild as the featured speaker, and at the picturesque UT Holston River Farm at the head of the Tennessee, this will be a memorable time for all who attend.

If you have not gotten tickets, there is still one more chance for you! WILD WEEK begins Monday, September 7 with a special screening of the movie Wild at the Regal Riviera at 7 p.m. Tickets for the movie include chances for door prizes from REI and two tickets to the Legacy Luncheon – and those could be yours! Your movie ticket also includes a pass for discounts and specials at participating merchants during the week.

Movie tickets are available online. You may be the last to have the opportunity to attend this exciting event!
