Cumberland Academy of Georgia hosts a few fundraising events each year, including a fall Golf Tournament and Spring Gala. Funds raised typically support our Annual Fund.

Save the date for Saturday, March 26, 2022, so you don’t miss the best party of the year, our Hula Palooza Spring Gala!  We are now gathering items for our Silent and Live Auction.  Our best selling items are “experiences.” Do you know of anyone with a beach condo? Season tickets to the Falcons?  A private chef? We want to hear from you!  Please contact Jamie Fencl at with any questions. Below are pictures of past gala events. 

Cumberland and Casino Junket Club hosted our second annual Chip Fore Charity Golf Tournament at the prestigious St. Ives Country Club. Cumberland aimed to raise money for a sensory playground. Golfers were greeted with a hot breakfast and rising country music star Eric Dodd sang a beautiful rendition of the national anthem before hitting the greens. Aside from lovely weather and St. Ives’ picturesque course, golfers were able to rub elbows with former NFL greats Solomon Brannon, Jeff Yeates, Flipper Anderson, and Billy “White Shoes” Johnson. When participants weren’t setting up for the perfect shot, they were able to bid on some exciting auction items, signed basketballs from Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, a cowboy hat signed by Willie Nelson, a jersey signed by Freddie Freeman, tickets to George Straits’ upcoming concert, and more. A special thank you to the board members, sponsors, volunteers, and community for assisting us with such a successful and memorable event. Please look for information on next year’s event and don’t miss your opportunity to join the fun.

We missed our 2020 Spring Gala, which was unfortunately cancelled due to COVID-19. We are hoping to share more information about a Spring 2022 Gala soon – keep your eyes out for updates!  

In the meantime, take a look at some photos of our Chip Fore Charity golf tournament held on November 1, 2021.
