Cuatro de Mayo: A Fundraiser for Non-Profit Cho-Zen

Looking for a local, fun, and feel-good way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo that doesn’t involve waiting for a table in an overly crowded Mexican restaurant?

Make sure to purchase your tickets for Cuatro de Mayo, a fundraiser put on by the 2024 Leadership Robertson County Class, to benefit local non-profit, Cho-Zen.

The event will take place on May 4, 2024 from 4 to 8 pm at the Robertson County Fairgrounds where there will be Mexican cuisine, live entertainment, a live auction, games, and more. The cost is $20 per person for general admission or $40 per person for admission plus an alcoholic drink wristband for wine and beer.

For thirty years now, The Robertson County Chamber of Commerce has led Leadership Robertson County,  a nine month program designed to encourage adults living in Robertson County to take an active leadership role in the future of our community.

Each session covers a different critical topic such as health care, education, local and state government, agriculture, and more. Each graduating class is also asked to design and implement a class project that impacts the community. Robertson County Chamber of Commerce President, Jordan Osborne, believes the project is essential to developing real leaders. 

“The class project serves to accomplish several goals: teamwork and collaboration; problem solving for a community partner, member or program; leadership development; community impact and reflection, and celebration of an accomplished goal,” she says. “Our motto is ‘If a leader identifies a problem, they should lead the way to a solution.’ That is the difference between a community member and a community leader.”

The 2024 Leadership class invited a handful of local nonprofits to give presentations about their organization, who they serve, and what their needs are. After much consideration, they identified Cho-Zen as their desired recipient, an organization based out of Springfield, TN that mentors at-risk youth in the area.

“Cho-Zen is a deserving recipient of our class project’s fundraising because they are founded upon the belief that every individual holds inherent value, and they are a beacon of hope and guidance for the youth in our community,” explains Leadership class member, Bryan Ayers. 

Through the funds raised by ticket sales, donations, and sponsorships for the Cuatro de Mayo event, the class hopes to raise $16,000 for Cho-Zen, which would help them purchase a passenger van they could use to transport their mentees who don’t have transportation to their events. 

“I am so incredibly proud of this year’s cohort! Ihave no doubt this fundraiser will be a success!” says Jordan. “And the impact it will have on Cho-Zen, an incredibly worthy mission driven organization, will be profound! Investing in our youth is truly an investment in our future!”

Come enjoy some delicious Mexican food for a good cause on May 4. Tickets can be purchased online at this link, or at the door the day of. If you are unable to attend but would like a tax deductible donation towards the cause, you may do so here.
