Get Ready to Rise & Shine

by Ashley Stewart

The Rise and Shine Fundraiser is an irresistible blending of bluegrass and barbecue, served up with a healthy bit of community spirit.

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.

Tickets are $100 per person. If you’d like to become a sponsor for the event, there are four levels of sponsorship. Patrons who donate $1,000 will receive two tickets to the event. Stewards that donate $2,500 will receive four tickets. Angels that donate $5,000 will receive six tickets, and Archangels who donate $10,000 or more will receive eight tickets. All sponsors will receive recognition at the event.
