5th Annual Chair-ity Event Raises Over $50,000 for The Children’s Village


To kick off the holiday season, community leaders hosted the 5th Annual Children’s Chair-ity Event at The Dolce in Peachtree City on Dec. 1.

Over $50,000 was raised to help the boys and girls who live in the cottages at The Children’s Village at Christian City.

More than 100 sponsors — including Coweta-Fayette EMC, GreyStone Power, Georgia Power, Nestle Purina, BB&T Reese Insurance, Lexus of South Atlanta, the Tim Hudson Foundation, and The Dolce Atlanta — helped to make the event a success.

The Santa’s Workshop Silent Auction was perfect for Christmas shopping with over 80 items donated by local artists and businesses. Volunteers, led by committee Chair Angela Bean, worked for an entire year making this signature benefit one that guests would enjoy.

Christian City has been caring for abandoned and abused children in a family-centered residential setting since 1965. Over 1,000 children have called Christian City “home.”
