Communities In Schools of Chatham County raised $21,414 at our recent Celebration of Educators fundraiser! Event proceeds support our programs that “surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life!” We also used this opportunity to honor seventeen Chatham County Teachers of the Year!
Festivities began at the Downtown Rotary Stage at the NC Arts Incubator and featured music and art from students representing all 17 schools of the Chatham County School District. The Mural Society of Siler City gave walking tours of the unique Downtown Siler City Murals.
A celebratory dinner was held at the Peppercorn Event Center and included a drawing to win one or all of five great raffle prizes!
Congratulations to all raffle item winners!
