Savannah Quarters® kicks off everyone’s favorite season with Summer Fest.
Think about all the fun activities you and your family experience over the course of a summer: getting together with friends, listening to live music, playing games with the kids, trying new foods, or maybe enjoying something as delightfully simple as a cold beer on a hot afternoon. Well, all of this and more just happened, in a single day, at the inaugural Summer Fest at Savannah Quarters®. View Event Video
Summer Fest was a large-scale community event Savannah Quarters® hosted on Saturday, June 10th. Attendees were treated to a beautiful, active, and family-friendly day. Kids enjoyed the bouncy house, face paintings and a wide variety of games and contests. There were two live concerts, featuring the bands Mainstreet and Tell Scarlet, performing to enthusiastic crowds. People enjoyed a fantastic fare from food trucks, along with beer, wine, and the company of each other.
Summer Fest also provided a unique opportunity for non-residents to experience just what makes Savannah Quarters® such a desirable place to live. Not only were they able to see first-hand the beautiful amenities and location, they were able to experience the welcoming and social nature of Savannah’s friendliest community.
In addition to showcasing the sense of community and fun at Savannah Quarters®, Summer Fest gave the community a chance to give back to those who served our country.
Tiny House. Big idea.
As part of the exciting event, the community raised funds for the Chatham Savannah Authority for the Homeless (CSAH), and awareness of their Tiny House Project for Homeless Veterans. The Tiny House Project is an innovative initiative to assist those who have served our country. This creative, alternative approach to housing will develop 72 tiny houses that will be provided for veterans in need.
“We partnered with the Tiny House Project because any time we create an event, we want to be sure we give back to the community,” says Jennifer Bynum, Vice-President of LStar Ventures. “We’re out here having a great time, but LStar also wants to make sure we are helping those less fortunate.”
And help they did.
The best part of Summer Fest was making a difference.
Savannah Quarters® accepted $10 per car as a donation at the gate. Many people gave more. All proceeds went directly to the Tiny House Project, raising a total of more than $2,000 for the day, complemented by another $5,000 donation from LStar Ventures, Savannah Quarters®. This brought the total to an amount that could provide a single tiny house for the project.
“This great festival highlighted the fantastic features that make Savannah Quarters® so unique. In addition to being the only new construction, master planned community in Savannah we have dynamic fun-loving residents, world-class amenities and we are deeply rooted in the community. For us, it’s all about being able to support those who’ve served us: our veterans.” said Gerrit Albert, Division President – Coastal South for LStar Ventures.
