Raising a Vision Campaign

The Village Green is the community treasure of Cashiers with its expansive green areas and gardens, numerous sculptures, woodland and wetland trails, an extensive children’s playground and frequent public music and other events. Thousands of residents and visitors enjoy our gem year round. Whether attending Groovin’ on the Green or a nature program, enjoying the playground with a child or grandchild or simply walking with a friend, everyone has a reason why they love The Village Green. For more than 25 years, our community has benefited from this beautiful, unique and free public gathering space in the heart of Cashiers.

In recent years, the Board of Directors of The Village Green recognized the need for a facility to house indoor public gatherings and conceived the idea of an event building. Such an event building would extend not only the season of The Village Green but also further its mission to preserve the wonderful quality of life and sense of community in Cashiers. This facility would provide greatly needed space for additional civic, spiritual, cultural and educational activities. Its uses and potential would be numerous and varied.

Last year, The Village Green was used for more than 100 events, often with several thousand people in attendance. Can you imagine how many more opportunities there would be for use of the Green with this year-round indoor facility?

The quiet lead phase of the capital campaign, Growing a Vision, has raised $2.6 million toward this goal. Now it is time to raise the vision to a new level as we raise this beautiful timber frame building. Let’s raise $900,000 to complete the vision!

Watch the video below to see an animated rendering of the new facility.
