The Big Payback & FCLSP – May 4-5, 2022

THE FRIENDS OF CEDARS OF LEBANON STATE PARK IS PARTICIPATING IN THE BIG PAYBACK!

The annual giving day The Big Payback begins tonight Wednesday, May 4, 2022 at 6:00 PM and continues until 6:00 PM on May 5. The Friends is excited to participate and join in on the fundraising event that unites Middle Tennessee each year.

The Big Payback, hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is a community-wide giving day which shines a spotlight on LOCAL giving and motivates Middle Tennessee to “give back” to nonprofits in a big way.

This 24-hour online giving event helps our Friends organization to raise funds. This year The Friends are purchasing a Ranger Crew utility vehicle and will donate it to the park for use by The Rangers, the Maintenance staff and our Camp Hosts.  Please help us by donating $10.00 or more between 6 PM Wednesday May 4 and 6 PM Thursday May 5.  We thank you.
