MILTON, Ga. – The new Cambridge High School (CHS) at the corner of Bethany Bend and Cogburn Road in Milton will open its doors to more than 1,000 students in August. Two special events planned for March will bring together the new Cambridge High School community and raise funds for important school enhancements.

While Fulton County provides the new high school building and very basic supplies, donations from parents and community partners are needed for everything from science lab equipment and start-up athletic gear to landscaping and stadium flags.

Dr. Ed Spurka, CHS principal, has targeted a list of items he would like to have in place when students first enter "Bear Country" this summer. He said he is very excited about the new school and hopes that parents and the community will attend the following two fundraising events.

The Cambridge High School Gala and Silent Auction will be held on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, at 7:30 p.m. at the Manor Golf and Country Club. Tickets are $80 per person or $150 per couple, which includes dinner, drink tickets and live entertainment by Red Head Blonde, a local band whose members are proud dads of future CHS students. Live and silent auctions will feature enticing items such as vacation and golf packages, pro sporting event tickets, home design services and more. Register online at .

The Cambridge High School Golf Invitational will be held Monday, March 19 at the Alpharetta Athletic Club's East Course (Crooked Creek) beginning at 10 a.m. Supporters will enjoy a beautiful spring day on the links with other Cambridge Bear fans. Various sponsorship levels are offered for interested parties. Register online at .
