Franklin Tomorrow’s has set its sixth annual Shrimp Boil for Saturday, July 14, at the Eastern Flank Battlefield Park at 1343 Carnton Lane.
CapWealth Advisors LLC is the presenting sponsor for the event, which will also include presentation of the Anne T. Rutherford Exemplary Community Volunteer Awards.
Tickets to the event are $50 per person, $25 for children ages 6-18.
In 2007, Franklin Tomorrow established the Anne T. Rutherford Exemplary Community Volunteer Award to honor the decades of service and tremendous impact that Ms. Rutherford has in Franklin. A longtime Franklin resident, her volunteer spirit has aided numerous organizations, from Franklin Tomorrow to United Way to Historic Carnton Plantation.
The awards have grown to include Volunteer Spirit Awards and the Youth Initiative Award, as well as other awards designated by the Board of Directors of Franklin Tomorrow.
Thanks to the generous support of FirstBank, a cash contribution will be made on behalf of each award recipient to the non-profit of their choice.
Turner Construction Co. is the Platinum sponsor of the Shrimp Boil, which will feature a low country-style meal prepared by Daily Dish of Grassland.
Winning the top award in 2011 was David Garrett, who as president of The Heritage Foundation oversaw the renovation and reopening of the Franklin Theatre, with Volunteer Spirit Awards being presented to Tom Lawrence of WAKM Radio; Art Helf for his support of Franklin’s adopted sons in the 101st Airborne; Peggy Smith for her work with the Boys & Girls Club; Sarah McGinley for her work with First United Methodist Church; and Bill Veevers for his dedication to reinvigorating the Williamson County Fair.
Additional sponsorship opportunities are available for this event, to be held Saturday, July 14, on the grounds at the Eastern Flank Battlefield Park, 1343 Carnton Lane.
