Co-PresidentsA Special Update from the Co-Presidents

We hope everyone is able to Embrace Spring and enjoy some warmer weather and sunshine soon! 
We have a very fun and full month planned, with some exciting and charitable events that we hope you can participate in.
We can't believe it's finally time for our gala and spring fling event!  We've been listening to all the 70s and 80s music we can! We're so anxious for this event!  It'll be grand fun, singing, swaying and dancing together not to mention the gourmet buffet dinner by Chef Alex Reethof!  And all in support of Gathering Industries. We are so thankful for all the work of our charity team!  Please come join us under the stars at the Farnsley's home!  And please know that this is not just a couple's event.  Many of our members are coming on their own or with a friend so don't let that stop you from joining in the fun - right in our own backyard!  

Please make sure to RSVP for the April 28th event, again supporting Gathering Industries. This is our main charity fundraiser and we hope to be able to have a wonderful report at our closing luncheon in May.  

Please contact Janet or Lisa if you have any questions. 
Are You Ready to Set Sail & Dance the Night Away?

YachtCome join us for a CASUAL evening of adventure with a private pool side chef's dinner (filet
mignon, poached salmon and lamb lollypops) and free flowing libations (red wine, white wine, beer and vodka---at your discretion) provided by Chef Alex Reethof, musical entertainment featuring Yacht Rock Schooner, and your tax deductible donation to Gathering Industries!  

This evening of exceptional experience was created to amplify the fun and raise funds for Gathering Industries, an Atlanta-based charity focused on job training in the culinary arts for homeless men, who in turn develop the skills that help them get and keep a job and create a new life for themselves and their families. Gathering Industries' program offers boxed lunches to companies across the city that bring food in for meetings and corporate events. For more information on their mission, go to http://www.gatheringindustries.org/
