All proceeds from the event will benefit the Northside Neighborhood House. Tickets start at $10 and can be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/girlfriends-gift-gala-tickets-11673133657
“We are so thankful to Cloudland Station for hosting an event benefitting our programs,” says Brianne Carswell, development director for Northside Neighborhood House. “Their generosity allows us to serve even more neighbors in need.”
"Just 15 minutes from Chattanooga, Cloudland Station is a new gated community nestled alongside Lookout Mountain. With sweeping vistas, a large lake and communal fire pits located throughout the property, it provides an idyllic setting for this unique event. Many of the vendors will be located near the Homestead and Gardens, a breathtaking wedding venue consisting of an 1871 handcrafted Amish barn and Italianate farmhouse." officials stated.
The Northside Neighborhood House provides service to the community through three programs: Emergency Direct Assistance, Education for Children and Adults and two Thrift Stores. The Emergency Direct Assistance program provides financial help with utilities, food, and prescriptions, as well as budgeting and direct referrals to other agencies in our community. Education programming includes after-school and summer tutoring and enrichment programs for elementary, middle and high school students, basic education help for adults with the goal of obtaining their GED and enrichment programs for seniors and adults. Needed clothing, furniture, and other items are provided to residents, free of charge or at a minimal cost through our Thrift Stores.
“We’re pleased to host this event, which aims to be fun and beneficial for the Northside Neighborhood House and the people they serve,” said Cloudland Station CEO John Tatum.
