Take a look at two of the wonderful items included in our No-Go Greenway Soiree Online Auction:

The VIP passes will provide an exclusive tour, led by the FedEx Race team, of the #11 FedEx Hauler and the NASCAR garage areas.

We want to recognize our Presenting Sponsor, Ring Container Technologies, for its continuing support of the Greenway Soiree event as well as its support to our work and mission all during the year. We also want to thank our Platinum Sponsors, Brother International, Belz Family Foundation, and International Paper; our Gold Sponsors, Buckman, Crews Development, and PermaTrak; our Silver Sponsors Alta Planning and Design, Harcros, and Patrick Accounting; and our Bronze Sponsors, Duncan Williams Asset Management, Urban Earth, and Walker Auction.

From Nov. 1-6,  we will be unveiling several video clips via social media and eblasts highlighting our continued progress on the buildout of the Wolf River Greenway, including the new bridge which will connect the Wolf River Greenway to the Shelby Farms Greenline via the Lucius Burch State Natural Area.

Thanks to all of you for the support during the past year which has contributed to a variety of programs and land conservation projects.  You are working with us to protect and enhance the Wolf River watershed through conservation and by connecting communities in our city.
