Twelfth Night great for Twin Cedars

Saturday kicks off campaigning for the King and Queen of Mask 2018 with the Twelfth Night celebration at Wild Leap Brew Co at 6 p.m.

Seven men and five women are vying for the positions this year.

To vote for king and queen, residents only have to pay $1 per vote.

The money raised from the votes go toward Twin Cedars Youth Services. Last year, the candidates raised $52,000 for Twin Cedars.

Twin Cedars runs multiple programs for children and families in LaGrange such as child advocacy, therapeutic foster care and the Troup County Prevention Coalition. Twin Cedars has other programs in Columbus and Macon, Georgia, and in Auburn and Opelika, Alabama.

The money raised by the event benefits our local children.

The services help many disadvantaged residents in LaGrange, and fundraising for them is a great way to give back to the community.

Even after the holidays have passed, people in the community still need help. By celebrating while fundraising, LaGrange is already giving back in January.

We hope to see you on Saturday.
