Twin Cedars hosts a signature event in Macon, Columbus, and LaGrange. When we host an event, we are not only raising funds to support our programs, but strengthening relationships with you, our supporters. Each event is unique in design and execution.
Dinner in the Garden
On October 21, 2017, Twin Cedars will host a unique fundraiser to benefit Anne Elizabeth Shepherd Home. We are bringing back a great concept in a new venue. This year’s event will take place in the gardens at the historic Wynn House. With a five course meal served under the stars and paired with the best wines, how can you go wrong? A collaboration between Chef Bryant Walker of the Wicked Hen and Chef Matthew Raiford of the Farmer and the Larder, this event promises an inspired menu. If you love the bounty of the ocean along with the best of Georgia grown food, you must join us!

Behind the Mask
Behind the Mask is a celebration of Mardi Gras, held at the DelAvant Event Center in downtown LaGrange. The event benefits a number of our LaGrange programs. Over 280 of our closest friends come out to partake of the best of Mardi Gras. With a New Orleans style buffet served by C’Sons and a band that could have stepped right off Bourbon Street, our attendees simply don’t want to leave at the end of the evening. Our events coordinator can be heard saying “Now there, this is LaGrange. You have to go home by midnight, or we all turn into pumpkins!” The date for this year is February 4, 2017. Our reigning King and Queen of Mask are Dale Jackson and Pam Herndon. This event is a sellout every year, so buy early!
Child Abuse Pevention Month Program
Please join us on April 20th at 10 am for our annual Child Abuse Prevention Month Program at the Coleman Community Center in LaGrange, Georgia. This year’s guest speaker, Tom Rawlings, is sure to make this year’s event more meaningful and impactful than ever before. We look forward to seeing you there.
Super Hero Run- Chattahoochee CASA
Super Hero Run is an event to benefit our Chattahoochee CASA program in Columbus on April 29th, 2017. Established as a national CASA signature event, Twin Cedars began hosting this 5K Run in 2013.

Dinner in the Orchard
May 6, 2017 marks the sixth annual Dinner in the Orchard. This year’s theme Back Roads to Beaches represents the journey of Chefs Matthew Raiford and Adam Jones as they make their way up from the Golden Isles, stopping at farms along the way to procure the best locally sourced ingredients to prepare this unique culinary experience. Chef Matthew is on the cutting edge of bringing farm-to-table into mainstream dining in his new venture, The Farmer and The Larder. Chef Adam works as Executive Chef of Tramici, one of Dave Snyder’s flagship establishments.When visiting his restaurants on St. Simons, Halyards and Tramici, guests will always have access to the freshest local ingredients procured from a myriad of vendors that Dave has cultivated relationships with over the years. We are so excited to see what Matthew and Adam will bring to Macon when they stage one of the most epic culinary events Macon has ever seen!
Dinner in the Orchard is officially sold out!
