SCCi Announces Bats, Beer, & Bluegrass Anniversary Party

FB post icon

The Southeastern Cave Conservancy, Inc. is planning it’s 25th Anniversary celebration and fundraiser  titled Bats, Beer, & Bluegrass. This event is sure to excite cavers, nature enthusiasts, bluegrass fans, and more!  The event will feature Barefoot Nellie & Co., a smooth driving bluegrass band based out of Chattanooga, TN. The group compiles impressive driving, darker arrangements, blending standard traditional bluegrass with a more innovative approach  — and they have quite a fan-base!

The event will take place at the Frick’s Cave Preserve, located in Walker County, Ga. on September 24, 2016 @ 7pm.  Although the cave will be closed at the time of the event to protect the hibernating bats, guests will be able to enjoy the above-ground features the preserve has to offer.  Food will be provided by 212 Market Restaurant, Tennessee’s first green restaurant and winner of the Best Farm to Table restaurant in Tennessee by Travel & Leisure magazine.  Beer and 25th Anniversary merchandise will be available for purchase at the event.

Sponsorship & ticket price information, and further details will be publicized in the coming weeks.

If you are interested in sponsoring or volunteering for this first-time bluegrass event, please email amber.lehmann@scci.org or ray.knott@scci.org.
