The Guild of the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center recently hosted the 15th annual Heritage Happening, the yearly benefit for the center in Townsend. For 2018, they themed the evening “Smoky Mountain Memories” while inviting guests at the sold-out dinner and auction to also look forward. “It’s all about the kids and our commitment to preserve and share the rich history of the Smoky Mountains and their people,” said Guild President Kathryn Barrow. Monies raised help the educational fund of GSMHC, providing admission, transportation and programs to school children.
