Friends of the Cumberland Forest are invited to an EPIC fundraising party Sunday October 26th at the CRI after the Perseverance Trail Run! The Perseverance Party for the Forest is a 4 hour (1 pm till 5 pm) celebration that will feature a Gourmet Chili Cook Off, Craft Beer Tastings, Crazy Games, A Forest Fairy Circus, Massive Silent Auction and much more.
As part of the 2014 Perseverance Trail Run, the Cumberland Forest community has been given the opportunity to build on the generosity of the secret forest fairy donor and have 100% of funds raised from this party MATCHED! That’s right, every penny we raise from the Run, the Raffle, and the Party will be matched – penny for penny by a secret donor. Think about the potential! This is a Party with a Purpose!
You don’t have to do the run to attend the party, but cheering on the finish line is highly encouraged! The Perseverance Trail Run is a wonderful celebration of community, sport, fitness and the forest and organizers are huge supporters of the Cumberland Forest. Head to #6 Park and cheer them on!
The Perseverance Party for the Forest will be an action packed event with lots of cool opportunities to contribute to fundraising efforts. Be prepared to take advantage of a significant silent auction filled with amazing donations from artists, adventure companies, professionals, retailers, restaurants, suppliers and much more! Donations are still welcome and auction revenues will also be matched.
Organizers are geared up to hit this out of the park (or forest)! October 26th is OUR DAY to raise as much money towards the purchase of Cumberland Forest lands as we can! Only 350 tickets, at $25 each, are available for this once in a life time fundraising event.
