The event is designed to help to raise awareness about Keep Tennessee Beautiful and the organization’s efforts to educate and rally Tennesseans on litter prevention, recycling and beautification in their communities.

All proceeds from this event will go to the University of Memphis/KTnB Foundation, which funds scholarships for students planning to study in the environmental conservation field and to community environmental education grants.
