Inspirational Hillside Luncheon
Posted Thursday, October 10th, 2013
If you’ve never heard of Hillside, then you are missing out on an incredible part of what makes Atlanta such a rich community.
Hillside has been serving children and families since 1888. What began as an orphanage is now a psychiatric residential treatment program that includes their very own SACS accredited school, a therapeutic foster care program, and community intervention programs needed to keep kids safe at home and successful in school and the community.
Held at the Defoor Centre, we were proud to assist in planning their innaugural Hillside Heroes fundraising luncheon, a key event to introduce the organization to community leaders, and to secure funding for Hillside’s vital mission.
The highlight of the event was a powerful monologue written by local playwright Eboni Warren and performed by local actress Hannah Mills, showcasing the experiences of one child who benefited from Hillside’s services.
We feel so fortunate to help the community learn of treasures such as Hillside, and we wish them many continued years of success!
