The Golden Isles Career Academy Foundation is delighted to bring back the annual Candlelight Carnival Fundraising Gala to the Golden Isles on October 18th at the newly renovated Sea Palms Resort.

The evening begins at 6pm when guests arrive at Sea Palms Resort and enter the festive and breezy beer garden. Sip a refreshing cocktail while listening to the smooth styles of local acoustic diva Kellie Parr. Bring out your inner “child at the fair”, playing the booth games built by Career Academy students that could win you an array of cash and prizes!

Check out the silent auction tables inside and out; and then step inside the main ballroom where Mason Waters will emcee a live auction that will include items for bid such as a wine pairing and dinner, and luxury accommodations at popular destinations among others! So put on your dancing shoes and prepare to be entertained with magical entertainment, yummy food & drink, fun games and enticing auction items from all over our generous community!

More than 175 guests attended last year’s inaugural event at Frederica Boathouse – resulting in The Golden Isles Career Academy Foundation raising almost $25,000 to support the Career Academy in providing quality education in a charter school environment.

The Golden Isles Career Academy (GICA) is all about developing our best and brightest local students and providing employment opportunities to keep them in the Golden Isles or prepare them to go beyond. In an era where competition to get into college is greater, standards are higher, and skilled trade workers are in high demand, GICA provides opportunities for hands-on career training that traditional high schools cannot.

The Golden Isles Career Academy Foundation serves as an advocate within the Golden Isles to further the goals of the Career Academy which includes STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education. The Foundation supports rigorous coursework, development of a strong work ethic and the acquisition of specific skills in a state of the art environment. In supporting the Career Academy, The Foundation is guided by the vision established by founding members and stakeholders within the Glynn County business community.

The Candlelight Carnival Fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday, October 18th – from 6-10pm at Sea Palms Resort. Tickets are $125 and can be purchased online at www.candlelightcarnival.com.
