Ron Cantrell Construction confirmed as presenting sponsor for TFS cycling event
Fundraising for the 2017 Twin Rivers Challenge cycling event at Tallulah Falls School is off to a fast start with the presenting sponsor stepping up to cover event expenses; the meal sponsor is confirmed as well.
Tallulah Falls School has a long-standing partnership with presenting sponsor Ron Cantrell Construction, Inc., as the firm serves as the school’s primary design/build contractor.
Additionally, Fieldale Farms Corporation with its Springer Mountain Farm brand, will serve as the event’s meal sponsor.
Working to solicit additional sponsorships is an 18-member volunteer committee of community leaders that have a connection to TFS.
“We are delighted to partner with RCCI and Fieldale on this event. Both companies have supported the ride in the past,” says TFS Executive Director for Advancement Sonya Smith. “I am excited, too, about our volunteer group contacting additional community partners to consider supporting this high-profile fundraiser for student scholarships.”
Available sponsorship levels are $1,000-Platinum, $500-Gold and $250-Silver.
"One hundred percent of funds raised from community sponsorships go toward student scholarships," Smith says. "This is a tremendous incentive for businesses, organizations and individuals motivated to help area students."
“More than 70-percent of our students receive financial assistance,” Smith says. “Many of our day student families from throughout Northeast Georgia wouldn’t be able to attend TFS without the support of our generous scholarship programs. This event serves as our primary fundraiser that directly impacts the lives of young people.”
President and Head of School Larry A. Peevy says the community support for the school has grown tremendously over the last decade. This event, Peevy says, is a wonderful opportunity to showcase our hospitality on a beautiful fall weekend.
“We are especially excited to have our friends at Ron Cantrell Construction and Fieldale Farms increasing their financial commitment this year,” he says. “Many of our local students will benefit from the scholarship dollars raised through this key fundraiser.”
The event, set for October 28, is again expected to attract cyclists from across the Southeast eager to experience the challenging terrain and spectacular beauty of a fall weekend in Northeast Georgia.
