Restaurants are invited to host special dining events with proceeds benefiting the Parkway. It’s a great way to give back to the park, whose visitors provide $1.4 billion in annual spending in adjacent communities.

Parties for the Parkway
Each year, groups and individuals choose to give back to the Foundation by hosting benefit events. From motorcycle tours to private dinner parties, they invite their friends and the community to become involved in supporting the Blue Ridge Parkway. You can too! Contact us about how you would like to share and celebrate your connection to the national park unit. For more information, e-mail Jordan Calaway or call (866) 308-2773, ext. 245.
Presentations for the Parkway
The Blue Ridge Parkway is a fascinating and special place. Every year, it welcomes more visitors than the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and Yosemite national parks combined. It is one of the most biodiverse national parks in the country. We love to tell the Parkway’s story. You can invite a speaker from the Foundation to address your group and share more about the impact our donors have on the Parkway. For more information, e-mail Rita Larkin or call (866) 308-2773, ext.418.
People for the Parkway
Facebook makes it easy to celebrate a special occasion by giving back to the Blue Ridge Parkway. For your next birthday, anniversary, or special day, you can “host” a fundraiser to show your support for the scenic road. You can designate gifts for the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, set a goal, and let your friends know you’d like them to give. A stronger Parkway is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.
