Our Community Service
At Sheelah Clarkson Asheville Real Estate Agency, we believe in giving back to the community we serve. The focus of our service reflects the shared values within our agency and our gratefulness for the extraordinary region in which we live and work.
Our agency is dedicated to preserving the natural beauty of our mountains and foothills. In order to promote land preservation, we have sponsored several programs held by our local land trusts. These events include annual fundraisers and educational seminars designed to inform land owners and professionals about the benefits of and process for placing land tracts under the perpetual protection of conservation easements.
We have been proud to sponsor the Derby Dinner at the September Spectacular Horse Show benefiting the Pacolet Area Conservancy. This weekend event at Harmon Field in Tryon featured equestrian classes for all ages, a silent auction and the gourmet Derby Dinner. Based in Tryon, the Pacolet Area Conservancy has a mission to protect and conserve the areaís natural resources.
In appreciation of our regionís equestrian community, we have supported a wide range of programs and events. We have been pleased to donate to Polk County Equine Rescue (PEER), an important service to the horse owners in the region. Our sponsorships at the Foothills Nature Equestrian Center (FENCE) facilitated the completion of the covered arena. We have served as a major sponsor of the National Equine Economic Development Summit and co-sponsor A Day in the Country, an annual fundraising event for the Tryon Riding & Hunt Club. We have also co-sponsored several national and regional horse shows held at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center near Hendersonville, and the Foothills Nature Equestrian Center (FENCE) in Tryon, North Carolina. In addition, we served as founding sponsor of Dancing Under the Stars, a spectacle featuring talented equine and human performers which has been a major fundraiser for The Therapeutic Riding of Tryon (TROT).
