JOHNSON CITY — More than 20 of the world’s best travel companies come together once a year during the AAA Cruise and Travel Show to offer hundreds of vacation possibilities, door prizes and unbeatable day-of-show deals. This year’s event will be held from noon to 4 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 9 in a new location — the Millennium Centre, behind the Carnegie Hotel.
AAA travel experts will be available to help plan and book a dream vacation and answer any questions. Plus, those in attendance can register to win the grand prize, a Royal Caribbean Cruise. All of the admission fees — $6 or $5 for AAA members — will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee. Food donations will also be accepted at the door.
“The Cruise and Travel Show is a fun event with a great pay-off — incredible deals and helping our community,” said Donna Ottinger, field travel manager.
The need for food and monetary donations is greater than ever, said Food Bank Director, Rhonda Chafin. “The Food Bank is happy that AAA has chosen Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee again this year as the charity to benefit from the travel show. AAA’s support through the years has helped us meet the need for food assistance in Northeast Tennessee.”
The Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee provides food for the needy in eight Upper East Tennessee counties. Second Harvest distributes food to more than 230 agencies that serve more than 25,000 meals and snacks each week.
