16th Annual Appalachian Spring Fundraising Gala

The 2018 Appalachian Spring Fundraising Gala is an annual event put on by students at the University of Tennessee in the Department of Retail, Hospitality and Tourism Management (RHTM).

All of the proceeds from the event are donated to the RHTM to enrich educational experience at the University of Tennessee. These funds support the participation of students in industry-related study tours, study abroad programs, unique internships, professional meetings and leadership development experiences.

Our event will take place at the Crowne Plaza in Downtown Knoxville on April 6th. This year's event is in honor of Sam Beall, the late Proprietor of Blackberry Farm. Sam was an influential leader in the Hospitality world and has left a major impression on the industry. He passed away in 2016, but his love for hospitality lives on through Blackberry Farm. Our hope is to represent Sam's vision through our event this year!

Friday, April 6 at 6:00pm to 11:00pm
