The CCEF Celebration of Education Annual Gala is a wonderful black-tie evening of fun in recognition of past and present staff and students. This past year, The Gala was held at the Northside-Cherokee Conference Center and presented by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The gala raised more than $80,000! All of the proceeds are returned to the students and staff of CCSD through our grant programs.
We are very excited about our event to benefit the schools and students of the Cherokee County School District. This black-tie night includes dinner, the “CCSD’s Got Talent” Student Talent Show, Silent Auction and special recognitions of outstanding Alumni and Educators. We are asking for your support. The Cherokee County Educational Foundation is a charitable, (501c3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the students and staff of the Cherokee County School District by promoting teaching and learning and celebrating achievements. The Foundation seeks funding and resources to enrich Cherokee County School District schools in areas not fully funded in the regular school program. This is including, but is not limited to, grants for schools, grants for teachers and other staff; grants for students for academic and after-school/extra-curricular programs; and support for specific School District initiatives such as the Cherokee Academies and Bring Your Learning Device. The Foundation is a Partner with the Cherokee County School District and supported by the Cherokee County School Board. Would you be willing to donate an item that we would use in our Silent Auction? Items could be gift certificates, gift basket, event tickets or anything you would be willing to donate. All donors will be recognized at the event. The Celebration of Education Gala is expected to draw over 400 supporters and community leaders.
