High Cotton hosts benefit for Communities In Schools
For the ninth year, High Cotton will partner with Communities in Schools for a special three-course lunch in honor of Administrative Professionals Day, Wednesday, April 24. Communities in Schools will receive 100 percent of the proceeds from the lunch.
Communities In Schools of the Charleston Area (CIS) is nationally accredited 501 (c)(3) nonprofit dropout prevention agency that surrounds students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. CIS serves approximately 10,700 students and their families in 23 public schools in Charleston and Berkeley Counties.
This annual event is held on Administrative Professionals’ Day to encourage business leaders to pay tribute to their support staff, while also supporting a vital local community organization. Last year High Cotton raised $3,975.
“Communities In Schools is honored to partner with Maverick Southern Kitchens as they assist CIS with our mission of helping students achieve in life,” said Jane Riley-Gambrell, executive director, Communities in Schools.
Executive Chef Joe Palma has created a celebration of tastiness with a three-course menu for the event. The lunch is $25 per person (gratuity not included). The full menu is included below and available online.
