Get Ready to Rise & Shine
by Ashley Stewart
The Highlands Community Fund is an ongoing resource dedicated to supporting local non-profits and service organizations. Supported by the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, and the generosity of sponsors and donors, the Fund supports assistance and environmental conservation groups such as Big Brothers, Big Sisters, the Literacy Council of Highlands and the Highlands Cashiers Land Trust.
Donations are wisely invested and the earnings are given back to the community in the form of grants. Since its inception in 1996, the Fund has given over $800,000 in grants back to the community.
On Monday, August 5, the Highlands Community Fund will present their Fourth Annual Rise and Shine Fundraiser. Hosted on the Balcony at The Bascom, the event will begin at 6:30 P.M. Enjoy a delicious meal from Lovie’s Barbeque in Atlanta and the beautiful sounds of bluegrass from the Caribbean Cowboys.
