If you’re a woman looking for ways to help support your community, and have a fun night out while doing it, then you’re invited to our Picnic in the Park fundraiser on Saturday, September 26th!
As you know, our mission is to help those with disabilities lead fulfilled, independent lives where they can share in community and make a positive impact on the world. Picnic in the Park will help us continue to do the work we’ve been doing so well for over 40 years. Support from the people who partner with our organization has been crucial to our success, so we hope you’ll join us!
Local author Amber Lanier Nagle will be speaking at the event, and there will be music, games, and giveaways to enjoy. Tickets are only $5 and every ticket number will be entered into one of the giveaways. The fundraiser is a potluck-style event and attendees are asked to bring a quilt or blanket to sit on, as well as their favorite side dish.
We want this to feel less like a fundraiser and more like a get-together among friends. It’s important for us to continually stay connected with the people who help us do what we do. And since Picnic in the Park is a fundraiser hosted specifically for women, it is the first of its kind for us. We love hosting events for families and so many wonderful organizations in our area support us every year. But this time we want to give the women in our community a chance to take a break, enjoy an evening out, and connect with each other.
Picnic in the Park will be held from 5-7 p.m. on September 26th at the Black and Yellow Playground behind George Chambers, which is located at 1000 Highway 53 Spur in Calhoun. Tickets are available now and can be purchased by calling 404-273-8114.
