Supporting Tehachapi's non-profit organizations

Cheers to Charity is an annual fundraising event featuring vibrant music, amazing food, fine wines, craft and home brewed beers beneath the canopy of a beautiful Tehachapi August night.Established in 2014, it is our mission to financially improve small, charitable organizations – as they work to make a visible difference in the greater Tehachapi area. The team accomplishes the mission through annual community events designed to profile the essence of our mountain community: clean air, cool breezes, rugged landscapes, and warm inviting people.The Cheers to Charity committee takes great care to ensure that valued sponsors, volunteers and guests feel welcome and appreciated as we join together for the greater good! It is our pleasure to serve the community!Why Cheers to Charity:We know that not every local nonprofit organization has the time or resources to add an extra fund raising event to already busy schedules. Even those with staffing and volunteers, find fundraising to be a challenge, as many would rather spend their time providing much needed services. Fund-raising is a necessity that takes away from their mission.Thus, each year we select small, recipient non-profits from different areas of service. We have chosen agencies that feed the poor, train veterans, help cancer patients and support residents with special needs. We have funded equipment, training, outreach programs and community enhancements. We love helping organizations that are helping people.Our Goal is to provide attendees with a great event that they will prompt them to return year-after-year. In doing so, we will raise more money to be given to local charities. No money is paid to committee members for their time. It is our goal to Cheer On Tehachapi Charities!!We are organized under a 501c3 non-profit organization and as such, all donations, as well as a portion of ticket purchases are tax deductible (please speak to your tax specialist for details).
