2nd Annual Barn Dance and BBQ a Big Success
A sold-out event at The Sawyer Family Farm on July 21, 2018, raised more than $40,000 for Blue Ridge School and Early College and other youth organizations on the Plateau. Guests enjoyed bluegrass music, square dancing, line dancing, a performance by the Blue Ridge JAM kids and a great barbecue dinner. For photos and more, click here.

Mountain Youth Charities Mourns the Passing of Board Member
We were devastated to lose our dear board member, Jarrett Davis, who died on September 17, 2018. Jarrett was a driving force behind Blue Ridge Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM), a program of Mountain Youth Charities (MYC). He served as treasurer of the JAM Advisory Board and a cherished board member of MYC. He gave so much to his community during his lifetime, and at his passing his family suggested that donations be made in his memory to a number of the organizations he served, including Mountain Youth Charities. Any such donations to MYC will be passed to JAM, as he would have wished. Donations may be mailed to Mountain Youth Charities, P.O. Box 1603, Cashiers, NC, or online at this site.
