Moët & Chandon Toast of the Treess

IMG_3849_edited.jpg

Our Moët & Chandon Toast of the Trees event is an exclusive celebration to kick-off the inaugural Cashiers Festival of Trees and to thank our top Benefactors and Corporate Sponsors. Toast of the Trees is sponsored by Moët & Chandon and will take place at The Orchard on Thursday, July 29, 2021. This VIP evening will include a champagne reception, multi-course meal curated by Chef Travis Boswell and paired to perfection by our friends

at Newton Vineyard and Cloudy Bay, and a short (albeit thrilling!) live auction. We will “toast” to our generous supporters and to a new year of supporting education and the plateau we all know and love. Please note: due to COVID-19 precautions, this event is limited and is at capacity.
