CUMMING — Each year, the Sawnee Woman’s Club holds Nite in Olde Cumming, a festive fundraiser that helps meet the needs of the community. This year’s version, however, also will celebrate the club’s 30th anniversary.

Amelia Stockton, club publicity chairwoman, said that the event has changed a bit over the last three decades.

“The first one was actually in the Billy Howell Ford building,” she said. “They seemed to pick a theme … They did a Western night and a Hawaiian night. Now we’re just going with the annual gala.”

This year the event — set for 7 to 11 p.m. March 21 at the Three Chimneys Farm Clubhouse — will feature a food from Chef Kern’s, music from Band X, dancing, casino games and a silent auction with a variety of items.

“We have trips, vacation homes that you can bid on,” Stockton said. “There are always gift certificates from local businesses. There’s sports memorabilia, ranging from [signed] footballs and baseballs to pictures.

There is other memorabilia from musicians, furniture and jewelry.”

Nite in Olde Cumming is the local women's service club’s sole fundraising event of the year. The money raised will go towards outreach programs that cover causes for the arts, conservation, education, home life and public and international issues.

“The mission is to advocate for and provide funds to children, families and charitable organizations to meet the needs of the community,” she said.
