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 on the River
The Anne Elizabeth Shepherd Home annual fundraising event, formerly known as Dinner in the Garden will be an outdoor and safety-conscious affair held on September 12, 2020, at the beautiful Eagle & Phenix PowerHouse, overlooking the Chattahoochee River rapids and the downtown Columbus skyline.
However, this event quickly sold out due to limited capacity! While the event itself must remain small, the needs of the Home remain large, and we have not yet reached our fundraising goal.
The McClure Family Foundation has recently given a $10,000 gift to the Home and they have challenged the community to match these dollars. Would you take a moment to help us reach our goal of raising $10,000 in matching funds? Every donation helps!
This year, despite the difficulties of COVID-19, we want to ensure that the thirty-five girls who live at the Home continue to have opportunities for a joyful childhood. You can help make it possible for these young ladies to move from the trauma and abuse of their past, to healing and safety on our campus. Your donation provides a hurting girl with a healing environment as well as fun activities that every child deserves, so that she can move forward successfully.
Together, we can ensure that the Home remains strong!
Get ready, friends! Before children arrive at Twin Cedars, they have often experienced the worst that life has to offer, being victimized or traumatized in ways that no child deserves.They need you!
On December 1st, you can help one child’s tomorrow be better than their yesterday. Giving Tuesday kicks off our Twin Cedars Holiday Campaign. Our goal is $25,000. Will you help a child?
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 6, 2021. Our reigning King and Queen of Mask are Josh O’Neal and Nicole Crane. This event is a sellout every year, so buy early!
Third Party Events
Third party events are a great way to partner with our community. A few of our third party events include:
- Batson-Cook Construction’s Clays for a Cause
- Dancing with the Stars of East Alabama
We are always happy to develop new partners who would like to host an event to benefit Twin Cedars. If you would like to discuss opportunities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
