Building a Legacy: Dave Ramsey at the Foundry
Dave Ramsey will be at The Foundry at World’s Fair Park on Friday October 14, 2016; at 6:30 P.M. to benefit Historic Ramsey House. Mr. Ramsey will be speaking on Building a Legacy. He is the nationally known expert on how to take control of your finances and stay debt free. He has also helped thousands, through his lectures and radio program, learn how to invest wisely for the future. The guest emcee will be Sam Venable, Knoxville’s very own advisor on anything and everything. Who’s words have provided many of us with those “ah, ha” moments; and always bringing us a smile or outright laugh. Peruse the Silent Auction and bid on that special item form one of our quality area Merchants. After dinner the big band sound of the Streamliners will provide music from the 40’s and early 50’s with sounds of Count Basie and Duke Ellington, for your dancing or listening pleasure. You are invited to raid that cedar chest in the attic or the nearest vintage shop and dress for the period. There will be a prize for the best 40’s attire.
For information or reservations please call 865-546-0745 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets for the benefit are $100 per person.
