It's Time to Celebrate: The 2022 Celebration of Education Gala

It's that time of year again! That's right. The Celebration of Education Gala is back and better than ever! We are so thrilled to be back together this year for our Gala, and we look forward to seeing all of your bright and smiling faces on March 12th.  

Every year, Cherokee County Educational Foundation works closely with wonderful sponsors, donors, and volunteers to throw the Celebration of Education Gala. The Gala is one of our grandest, most fun nights of the year, and it's all in driven by our mission to raise money for the Cherokee County School District.  

Our Mission

CCEF's mission is to raise money and grant the allocated funds to CCSD students, teachers, staff, and faculty to help create memorable, and impactful educational opportunities. Of course, we cannot meet our goals without the immense support and generosity of our donors and sponsors. We'd like to give an extra special thank you to Manley Spangler Smith Architects for sponsoring this event. All of the proceeds raised during this event go directly back into funding educational projects in the Cherokee County School District!

The Fun Stuff  

CCEF received many wonderful donations of very exciting items for our silent auction, like 2 tickets to see Kansas and a $2,500 Gift Certificate to Anna Christine Bridal, just to name a couple. Both the auction and our 50/50 raffle will be open online for those who want to participate!  

Acworth Georgia's very own 1885 Grille is catering the Gala, and if you've ever had their food, you know this is not something you want to miss! Not to mention, there will be a full bourbon cash bar open for our Gala guests.  

As for entertainment, there will be plenty of it! The Gala will be graced with the comedic stylings of the hilariously witty Andrew Stanley. Check out his website to learn more about him and his comedy. There will also be musical performances from Cherokee County- based Kurt Lee Wheeler and Atlanta native Ethan Senger!
