RENO, NV (KOLO) Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful invites residents and visitors of the Truckee Meadows to ignite their senses for a good cause at KTMB’s 4th annual Raise the River fundraiser.

Title sponsor Renown Health presents this year’s event.

Guests will enjoy culinary selections by celebrity Chef Mark Estee of Liberty Food & Wine Exchange, local craft libations, entertainment, and sensory activities at the Sensory Garden in Idlewild Park in Reno Thursday, August 15, 2019. Tickets are on sale.

This year, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful is celebrating 30 years of being a voice for beautification through education and active community involvement. With the help and support of the City of Reno Parks and Recreation, KTMB broke ground on the Sensory Garden in 2012, turning it into a permanent fixture in Reno to teach children about local ecosystems, watersheds, and pollinators through their five sense.

“This event is always a wonderful evening in the beautiful Sensory Garden,” says Christi Cakiroglu, KTMB’s Executive Director. “To see local artists, businesses, entertainers, and individuals in the Truckee Meadows community come together for this event truly embodies what Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful is all about.”

This event serves as the primary fundraiser to support KTMB’s education of local students as well as cleanup efforts to make our community a cleaner, healthier, more beautiful region for years to come.

The event will have sensory stations themed for taste, touch, smell, sight sound, a sit-down family style meal, dessert and fun sensory surprises! Guests will also have the opportunity to win fabulous prizes by making a donation to support KTMB at the event.

KTMB’s Raise the River is made possible by 2019 sponsors: Renown Health, NV Energy, Dolan Auto Group, Wells Fargo, Grand Sierra Resort, Moana Nursery, Nevada Mining Association, NOW Foods, Ormat, AGC, and Liberty Food and Wine Exchange.

This event is an annual sell-out. Tickets and tables are on sale now, and can be purchased here.
