Appalachian Fusion Dinner

September 17, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Saturday, September 17th, 5:30 PM
Appalachian Fusion, our annual farm to table dinner and our most important fundraiser of the year, will return in September. After two years of having alternative pandemic-safe events, Appalachian RC&D is thrilled to invite our friends and supporters back to the dinner table.
This year, Appalachian Fusion will be held at picturesque Serenity Knoll Farm & Cooking School, which overlooks Jonesborough and is home to some of the most gorgeous sunsets you’ve ever seen. The menu will be designed and prepared by Chef Sheridan Nice, former owner of Mona Lisa’s and current Culinary Director at Serenity Knoll. Chef Nice will prepare a 4-course Mediterranean dinner sourced from locally grown or raised food.
Appalachian Fusion will include live music performed by a special guest, and a silent auction. Should you be so inclined, your ticket also includes beer and wine. New this year, the Proofs & Provisions Raffle will invite guests to enter for a chance to win one of ten prizes, featuring one grand prize of the highest quality spirit and most premium cuts of meat, and nine additional prizes of spirit and/or meat cut pairings.
There are numerous ways to get involved with Appalachian Fusion:
  1. Volunteer – ARCD is searching for volunteers who are willing to help with set up and break down, serve food, pour beverages, among other things.
  2. Donate to the Silent Auction or Raffle – ARCD is now accepting donations of goods, services, and experiences for the Silent Auction as well as donations of rare or premium spirits for the Proofs & Provisions Raffle. Donors will be acknowledged in print and online.
  3. Sponsor a table – There are 5 tables available for sponsorship, and each sponsorship includes 8 tickets to the event and a reserved table so your party can all dine together.
  4. Become an event sponsor – We have three levels of events sponsorship available for businesses or individuals. Each level includes marketing and promotional benefits as well as tickets to the event.
  5. Buy a ticket – Ticket sales, silent auction bids, and raffle ticket purchases all help us reach our fundraising goal.
Details for each of these opportunities can be found at:
All funds raised through Appalachian Fusion will help us in our mission to conserve natural resources and promote rural economies in Northeast Tennessee.
