We were honored that Families First asked AEP to cover the 16th annual Dining for a Difference event, their largest fundraiser of the year. The event drew community leaders, corporate sponsors, advocates and other guests — more than 500 in total — to a celebration of the Families First mission: To ensure the success of children in jeopardy by empowering families.
InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta was host to a cocktail hour, dinner and presentations including client reflections and videos. Families First CEO Kim Anderson was a busy lady but glowed all night!
Author and playwright Pearl Cleage signed her books and shared inspiring words as the event’s special guest. Her work spans books including Things I Should Have Told My Daughter: Lies, Lessons & Love Affairs, What Looks Like Crazy On An Ordinary Day and Seen It All and Done the Rest and many plays, like Flyin’ West and Other Plays, A Song for Coretta and The Love Project. Her titles alone could hook any reader!
One of the most uplifting portions of the evening was the presentation of scholarships to five deserving Metro Atlanta students. Families First leadership and the entire audience made them feel very special.
With the tremendous turnout and the heartwarming success stories shared at the event, there was a lot to celebrate.
InterContinental Buckhead provided a delicious meal and beautiful tablescapes worthy of the event.
Thank you, Families First, for allowing us to capture the smashing success of your special event!
