KTMB is back in the Sensory Garden for annual Raise the River fundraiser event

This year’s event powered by NV Energy.

Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful’s annual Raise the River Fundraiser event is back, live and in-person, at the Sensory Garden in Idlewild Park Reno, on Thursday, August 19, 2021! KTMB invites residents to ignite their senses for a good cause at KTMB’s 6th annual Raise the River Fundraiser presented by NV Energy. Guests will enjoy culinary delights in a family-style dinner from Chef Mark Estee of Liberty Food & Wine Exchange, with dessert from Grand Sierra Resort, and local craft libations from Revision Brewing, 10 Torr Distilling and Brewing, El Sativo Tequila, Brewer’s Cabinet, Seven Troughs Distilling, Tahoe Blue Vodka, Coffeebar and Hub Coffee Roasters. There will also be plenty of activities at various sensory stations themed for taste, touch, smell, sight, and sound, all designed to ignite your senses throughout the Sensory Garden. Finally, guests will also have the opportunity to win fabulous prizes by making a donation to support KTMB at the event. 

This event serves as the primary fundraiser to support KTMB’s dedication to creating a more sustainable and beautiful region through waste reduction, education, and active community involvement.

KTMB broke ground on the Sensory Garden in 2012 with the help and support of the City of Reno Parks and Recreation Department. The Sensory Garden section of the park has been turned into a permanent fixture in Reno to teach children about the local ecosystems, watersheds, and pollinators through their five senses.

KTMB’s Raise the River is made possible by our gracious 2021 sponsors: NV Energy, Panasonic, Wells Fargo, Grand Sierra Resort, Moana Nursery, Nevada Mining Association, NOW Foods, Revision Brewing, Ormat, Granite Construction, and Liberty Food and Wine Exchange.
