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
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 20, 2018. 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 20th 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.
Dinner in the Garden is officially sold out! If you are interested in making a donation, please click the link below.Make a Donation

Cochran Gallery owner Wes Cochran along with retired Twin Cedars Executive Director Mike Angstadt have planned a unique evening of bourbon samplings from various southern distilleries, set against the backdrop of Cochran Gallery’s newest exhibit featuring two artists from New York whose friendship, and art, broke racial barriers in the early 1930’s.

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 January 27,2018. 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 28 from 6-9 pm at the Loft Green Room, Chattahoochee CASA is proud to present “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!
