Schwartz went on to say that the first social came about as a result of a Love Towers resident walking his dog in the neighborhood. “He developed a friendship with one of the Old North Knoxville residents, and they wanted to do something for us. Three years later, the social is still going strong and our relationship with our neighbors is stronger than ever.”

The Love Towers Special Events Committee supported the neighborhood association, and Rose Mortuary and Broadway Carpets were corporate sponsors for the event.
