Introducing the inaugural


Benefiting the Summit Charter School Foundation and Cashiers-Highlands Non-Profits

In 2021, the Summit Charter School Foundation is thrilled to introduce a new and exciting fundraising event to benefit the school—as well as other non-profits across the Cashiers-Highlands plateau—the inaugural CASHIERS FESTIVAL OF TREES!

So, what's this event all about?

The Cashiers Festival of Trees is a multi-day, family-friendly event featuring beautifully decorated trees, wreaths, décor items, children’s crafts, holiday performances, and activities. The holiday event will bring together families, non-profits, businesses, and individuals to celebrate the holiday season with one-of-a-kind shopping and programming for all ages. The event will take place at 370 Mitten Lane from Friday, November 26 - Saturday, November 27 and from 10 AM - 5:30 PM. Click here for our schedule of events and tickets.

While raising money for the school is the primary focus of the event, the SCS Foundation has decided to spread the holiday spirit of giving: when a non-profit decorates a tree or wreath, 20% of the item’s sale will go BACK to the participating non-profit, creating a collaborative initiative to benefit our fellow charities and their worthy causes. Supporting our entire community is very important to our cause and the school’s overall mission.
