AD: ‘Celebrate the Buffalo National River’ event set for Friday at Fayetteville Town Center

The Buffalo River Coalition will host a fundraising gala on Friday, Oct. 23 at Fayetteville Town Center.

The event, titled Celebrate the Buffalo National River was created to recognize the invaluable role the Buffalo National River plays in the social and economic sustainability of the Ozark rural region.

The event will showcase the culture and natural amenities of the river, and it’s myriad opportunities for outdoor recreation, and will also include locally-sourced food, music, beverages, and more.

The gala will also honor Kenneth Smith, one of the pioneers in the movement to designate the Buffalo as America’s first National River. Smith will be on hand to discuss the original fight to save the Buffalo, offer insights into the river’s future, and deliver a keynote address.

The evening will begin with a pre-party at 5 p.m. in the lobby, with live music, a cash bar, and a book signing by Smith. Pre-party admission is a $5 donation.

The banquet will begin at 6 p.m., and includes complementary beer and wine, and a three course dinner by Greenhouse Grille chef Jerrmy Gawthrop.

Individual seats at tables of 10 or more at the banquet are $100 each, and groups, businesses, and organizations may sponsor tables of 8 for $1,000.
