 The Magnolia Tree of Dreams

The Magnolia tree symbolizes luck and stability and is a staple in Southern gardens, delighting people with its lovely blossoms in the early to mid-spring. The Magnolia Tree of Dreams represents the dreams of our students - dreams to be able to complete their degrees and go on to fulfill their life's purpose. The tree begins bare and is filled with beautiful hand-crafted, by the Crafty Cavs, magnolias to represent the support of our generous community.

Help us bring our Magnolia Tree of Dreams into full bloom! Magnolia Sponsorships are available before and during the Soirée. For each $500 magnolia sponsorship, you are helping to bring students closer to their dream. As a sincere thank you, donor names will be attached to each sponsored magnolia at the event. Our goal is to sell 100 magnolias and raise $50,000 again this year!
