CARYVILLE, Tenn. — The Caryville community will host an event Monday evening to raise money for the community's first-ever inclusive playground. Organizers said that the event will include music, food and tons of fun!
The event was originally supposed to take place on Saturday afternoon. However, due to snow, the event has been postponed until Monday.
Organizers said the event was sold out as of Friday afternoon. They said they sold more than 300 tickets for the event, all going towards making a playground that will help make sure all children have a chance to have some fun. They also said they still plan to hold the event despite expected winter weather, and encouraged participants to bundle up.
They said they will have food from Stockyard BBQ and desserts from Something Sweet Cafe. They said there will also be an auction, as well as a Caryville native as the keynote speaker — Jamey Chadwell. He is the head coach of the Coastal Carolina University football team.
The team won its first bowl game in school history under Chadwell's leadership, according to organizers.
Money of the event will go towards building an inclusive playground so that children of all abilities in the community can have a place where they can play and build friendships.
The event will be at 7 p.m. on Monday at Hidden Spring Farm. It is located at 4251 General Carl W. Stiner Highway in LaFollette.
