Next month, community leaders and elected officials, including Congressman Lynn Westmoreland, will come together to host an elegant holiday affair with delicious food and Christmas cheer.
It’s the 5th Annual Children’s Chair-ity Event benefiting the abandoned, abused, and otherwise homeless children who live in the cottages at The Children’s Village at Christian City.
The event will feature a silent auction of extraordinary chairs and other works of art donated by local artisans.
All proceeds will help the children who live at Christian City have a wonderful Christmas.
The event will be held Dec. 1, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at Dolce Atlanta in Peachtree City. The cost is $10 paid at the door or registered online.
Sponsorships are available from $250 to $5,000. The event is being organized by some hard working volunteers.
Last year’s event was phenomenal. With the help of more than 100 sponsors, volunteers, and local artists, more than $36,000 was raised for the children.
This event provides great exposure to sponsors, giving front page coverage in local papers, and has been featured in many publications, magazines, and a five minute TV commercial post event. The networking will be at its best, the food, music, and cheer will be top notch.
There will be a silent auction, “Santa’s Workshop” with an opportunity to pick up a gift for that special someone.
One of many exciting items to bid on is a special acoustic guitar signed by almost a dozen country artists which include Trace Adkins, Sara Evan, Julianne Hough and Diamond Rio to name a few.
There are also other great items such as a weekend get-a-way in the North Georgia Mountains, to Chateau Elan, or to Hilton Head Island.
Also, children from The Children’s Village paint miniature chairs, which are given to the guests who sponsor a child for the month of December.
Located in Union City, Christian City has ministered to children of need for almost 50 years. Christian City cares for the children who are sent to it both by private placement and from the Department of Family and Children Services.
With a focus on family, education and healing, Christian City is well known and respected throughout the State of Georgia as providing a program of excellence. Its staff ministers to those who are dealing with life crisis, such as death of a parent, divorce, or sexual, physical, and emotional abuse issues.
Christian City’s family environment allows children from every background to have access to a traditional family unit and support systems to help mend their wounded spirits.
For many, Christian City will be the only home some children will ever know.
Christian City, sits on a 500 acre campus that, for the past 46 years, has been ‘home’ to over 1,000 abandoned, abused, and neglected children.
The Children’s Village at Christian City is a nonprofit, nondenominational organization that provides these special children a safe haven in a loving, family-centered, residential setting. The funding to provide this care is raised through individuals, civic groups, the faith community, local businesses and corporations like those who sponsor the Annual Children’s “Chair-ity” Event.
