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.
Our Children Our Future Gala
Join us for our first annual Our Children, Our Future Gala benefiting Safe Families for Children, a program that partners with the church to temporarily care for at-risk children. We’re excited to welcome our guest speaker this year, Christian comedian Mike Williams! We know this event will be a blast and are looking forward to partnering with our community to support this program. The Our Children, Our Future Gala will be September 23rd at 6:30pm at the Del’avant in LaGrange. For sponsorship information, please visit the link below.Sponsorship Opportunities
Dinner in the Garden
The Anne Elizabeth Shepherd Home has long been a symbol of hope in our community. It is a place where young ladies who have suffered sexual, physical and emotional trauma can come to heal. Our residential program provides life skills and therapeutic services for female residents who desperately need an environment which allows them this opportunity to receive educational, emotional, and daily living support.
It is with much excitement that we have begun preparations for the third annual Dinner in the Garden. This year, our committee has chosen to return to Columbus Botanical Gardens as our backdrop for this epic culinary event scheduled for October 19, 2019. Dinner in the Garden represents the collaboration of Chefs Bryant Walker and Tara Van Etten with farmers from around the region to bring one night of unparalleled culinary excellence to Columbus.
We can assure you that October 19th will be a night to remember. With your support, we will be successful in providing for the critical needs of our residents who come to Anne Elizabeth Shepherd Home to heal and improve the quality of their lives.
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 November 27th, 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 2, 2019. Our reigning King and Queen of Mask are Tyler McCoy and Lucretia Silcox. This event is a sellout every year, so buy early!

Red Shoe Party - Chattahoochee CASA
On April 27, 2019, The Red Shoe Party is back and bigger and better than before! Chattahoochee CASA is proud to present the 2nd Annual “The Red Shoe Party,” a fundraising event themed around Dorothy’s ruby red slippers in the Wizard of Oz with the slogan, “There’s No Place like Home.” For the children in foster care in our community, this could not be more true. As they are removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect, it is CASA’s mission to help them reach permanency in a safe, stable home as quickly as possible. This event is designed to be a party with a purpose helping to raise money and awareness for Chattahoochee CASA so that our community volunteers have the training and support to continue advocating for our most vulnerable citizens. Dust off your red shoes and join the party!
Red Shoe Party is officially sold out! Thank you for supporting Chattahoochee CASA!

You are invited to the ninth annual Child Abuse Awareness Ceremony on April 17th at 10 am at the Coleman Center (701 Lincoln Street in LaGrange). Our key note speaker will be Alan Cook, Director of Prosecutorial Clinic Program at the University of Georgia School of Law and published author on domestic violence and child abuse cases. We are looking forward to hearing his story!
