Art for a Cause, Cashiers NC

Twice a year, the Rotary Club of Cashiers Valley transforms The Village Green in Cashiers into a living, breathing art space. The event, 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.

Join us this Memorial Day weekend as Art for a Cause celebrates 11 years of hand-crafted philanthropy. The show takes place on Saturday, May 26, and Sunday, May 27, from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. both days, rain or shine. Browse one-of-a-kind pieces from a wide variety of painters, sculptors, jewelers, wood and metalworkers, 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 our community. Meals on Wheels, the Boys & Girls Club of Western North Carolina, 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. We’ll see you at the Show!
