Sponsors sought for FBA Independence Day picnic


Farragut Business Alliance is moving forward with plans for a community Independence Day celebration … and they’re looking for help.

The inaugural Red, White & Blues Evening will be held at 6 p.m., Friday, July 2, on Horne Properties land adjacent to the farragutpress.

All proceeds from the event, above expenses, will be donated to Farragut schools, in conjunction with Farragut’s Education Relations Committee.

“Everybody I’ve talked to is fired up about it,” David Purvis, FBA founder, said.

FBA is looking for sponsorships at three levels: Platinum, Gold and Silver.


• The Platinum Level would be for sponsorships of $2,500.

Sponsors would receive premium placement in print advertising (including farragutpress and banners), would be included in check presentations and press coverage of donations to beneficiary schools and would receive recognition during the event.

These sponsors also would receive 20 adults and 20 children admission tickets.

• The Gold Level would be for sponsorships of $1,000.

Sponsors would be included in all print advertising (including farragutpress and banners), would be included in check presentations and press coverage of donations to beneficiary schools and would receive recognition during the event.

These sponsors also would receive 20 adults and 20 children admission tickets.

• The Silver Level would be for sponsorships of $500.

These sponsors would be able to display a company banner on the event site, would receive recognition during the event and would receive 10 adult and 10 children admission tickets.

For more information about sponsorships, contact Purvis at 865-599-1817, Ginny McLain-Tate at 865-368-4377 or Pamela Treacy at 865-966-7122.

Interested parties also can e-mail the Business Alliance at farrbusall@gmail.com.

“This is an inaugural event. You’re getting in on the ground floor. And 15 years from now, when it’s big, [you] will still be involved,” Phil Dangel, co-owner of The Shrimp Dock, said.

Admission tickets will be $5 for adults and $2 for children under age 12. Food from The Shrimp Dock and from Buddy’s Bar-B-Q will be available for purchase, as will beer and wine. Some tables and chairs will be provided, but families are encouraged to bring folding chairs or blankets.

Entertainment will be provided by Slow Blind Hill from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

Parking for the event will be available in the open field off Smith Road and a shuttle will be provided to the event.

Tickets will be pre-sold beginning the morning of July 2 and will be sold at the door.

FBA hopes this event will become an annual one, to be held the night before the town of Farragut’s Independence Day Parade. This year, the Parade will be held Saturday, July 3.
