Kate’s Club 10th Anniversary Gala (5/18)

Twenty five years ago this June, Keith Pepper, Meredith Bass, and Hilary Nelson, lost their mom, Shelley Steinman Pepper, to breast cancer.  Not a day goes by that they don’t think about her, count their blessings for the time they had with her, and do their best to make her proud about the lives they lead.

Part of the work they do to honor her memory has been their involvement in Kate’s Club, an Atlanta non-profit organization set up a decade ago to work with children after the death of a parent or sibling.

They have been asked to serve on the Host Committee for this year’s 10th Anniversary Gala, and they are hoping that they will be able to raise $25,000 in memory of their mom.  This money will assist Kate’s Club to bring hope and magic to even more children in need in Atlanta.

Please consider joining them as they remember their mother and honor Kate’s Club for 10 years of amazing work.  In addition to that, there will be a seated dinner, cocktails, live entertainment, dancing, and a live and silent auction!

Tickets are available HERE Buy before Valentine’s Day for the early bird price of $125 per ticket.  Tables (10 people) are $1,250 before V-Day and $1,500 after.  The money raised goes to an important cause + it will be a very fun evening!  The Loews is also offering guests of the Gala a discounted room rate of $159 until April 26.  Book now!

WEDNESDAY: Fly for a Cause!

You guys! 

As if there weren’t enough reasons to love Flywheel.  

THIS WEDNESDAY: to help raise relief funds for those affected by Superstorm Sandy, Flywheel is hosting classes nationwide on Wednesday, November 7th to benefit the American Red Cross!

Here’s the Q+DD for Atlanta:  Instead of reserving your bike or mat online, RSVP to buckhead@flywheelsports.com or simply walk in to either:

Flywheel: 6:30PM -  Jeremy

FlyBarre: 9:30AM - Cara

…and bring your checkbook!  The minimum suggested donation is $25 (the cost of the class anyway!) 

BONUS:  During Jeremy’s ride there will be a random drawing for two Falcons tickets for the Falcons VS Cardinals game November 18th at 1:00PM!

BONUS BONUS:  I heart Jeremy and his class is amazing.  Almost as amazing this picture:

I’ll be there for sure!  Come Fly with me?

Needs Some Fun Plans for Saturday Night??

Don’t fret, folks.  I’ve got you covered!  (I’m always lookin’ out for you!)  :)

My sweet friend, Erin, is throwing an event this weekend to benefit The Walk to End Alzheimer’s, and it’s at The Sound Table’s 2nd space from 7:00 – 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 15.  Info below:

Erin created this event based off of her involvement with the Walk last year and in honor of her mother, who is currently battling Alzheimer’s, and all who are affected by this terrible disease.  ALL of the proceeds go to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Now THAT is a lot of Saturday night awesomeness in my book (silent art auction + music from local artists) for only a teeny weeny $5 cover at the door!  And, in my humble opinion, it never hurts to combine your weekend boozing with some serious do-gooding!

Good luck, Erin, I hope it’s an amazing evening!  :)
