Art for a Cause 2017

For the past 10 years, the Rotary Club of Cashiers Valley has helped transform The Village Green in Cashiers into a living, breathing art space.  

Art for a Cause, brings extremely talented and skilled artisans from throughout the Southeast and beyond to this bi-annual event, which raises money for the underserved in our community.

This Memorial Day weekend is even more special, as Art for a Cause turns 10.  The show takes place on Saturday, May 27, and Sunday, May 28, from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. both days, rain or shine. Browse one-of-a-kind pieces from more than 85 painters, sculptors, jewelers, wood and metal workers, quilters, toy and instrument crafters, soap and condiment makers, and more.

While admission is free, a suggested donation of $3-5 is appreciated.  Proceeds from the show go to benefit the many local charities, non-profit organizations, community projects, and scholarship recipients supported by the club. 

To date, the club has raised and distributed more than $1 million to those doing good work in the community.  Meals on Wheels, the Boys & Girls Club of WNC, Fishes & Loaves Food Pantry, the Blue Ridge Free Dental Clinic, Rise Against Hunger, the Vecinos Farmworker Health Program, and the CART (Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust) Fund are just a few of the community efforts Cashiers Rotary supports. 

The club has also recently made a commitment to helping keep our talented and skilled workers at home by funding continuing education opportunities to those who live and work in our area.

So join us for a celebratory weekend of fine arts, local crafts, family fun, stunning scenery and old-fashioned philanthropy in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The Village Green is located at the intersection of Highways 64 and 107 in beautiful Cashiers, North Carolina.  For more information, go to CashiersRotary.org.
