Mountain Roots Holds First Fall Feast Fundraiser - Brevard NC


Last updated 11/27/2018 at 2:43pm

Rosman Elementary School Principal Bob Dinsdale and his daughter, Paige, joined in on the fun of the Mountain Roots Fall Feast.

Mountain Roots, Inc., had a great turnout for its First Annual Fall Feast fundraiser on Sunday, Nov. 18, at Lola's Old Hickory House.

The crowd consisted of Mountain Roots campers and other outdoor education participants who brought their families, community members, school staff, Mountain Roots donors/sponsors; Mountain Roots staff members and Board of Directors. It was an action-packed night with activities for the children, a lively square dance with caller Marion Boatwright and music from Josh Carter and friends. A silent auction featuring the goods and services of many local donors was also held.

While some guests came for the food, some for the square dance and some to learn more about Mountain Roots, the general consensus at the end of the evening was that everyone walked away satiated from a delicious dinner and a fun evening in community and encouragement by what 2019 (and beyond) holds for Mountain Roots and the young people of our county.

The fundraiser successfully raised enough funds to continue to support and develop the work of Mountain Roots Outdoor Education in all five public elementary schools in Transylvania County.
