Residents and guests visiting the Smoky Mountains have the opportunity to enjoy the area’s newest seasonal show, Thomas Kinkade’s Christmas of Light, while supporting Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee.
On Tuesday, Dec. 8 and Friday, Dec. 11, 2015, guests may purchase tickets to the performances scheduled on those days at a 50% discount if they bring canned or boxed food items and drop them off at the box office when they purchase their tickets. Guests are welcome to contribute as many food items as they’d like, but only need to bring one donation to receive the discount.
The Smoky Mountain Palace will be hosting this food drive to support Second Harvest Food Bank’s goal of a stronger, healthier, more compassionate community. The food will be used to assist with hunger relief in East Tennessee, and because this show is the only regional location supporting this particular Second Harvest program, every donation, no matter how small, is sincerely appreciated.
Second Harvest requests contributors to consider donating the following pantry items: canned proteins, canned fruits in own juices or light syrup, canned vegetables (low sodium / no salt added), soups, multigrain cereal, grains, 100% fruit juices and condiments. Glass containers cannot be accepted.
Guests interested in attending performances of Thomas Kinkade’s Christmas of Light on other days can still take advantage of a $4 discount per individual ticket for each food item delivered to the box office Saturday, Dec. 12 through Saturday, Dec. 19, 2015.
Second Harvest Food Bank is the East Tennessee region’s largest hunger-relief charity; operating programs in 18 counties. The food bank secures and distributes over 18 million pounds of food and grocery products annually through a network of over 500 partnering non-profit organizations such as food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and schools.
