Covenant House Georgia Presents Night Of Broadway Stars At The Buckhead Theatre
Once a year, Covenant House GA presents a Night of Broadway Stars. It is their largest fund raising event of the year. Sponsors like Delta, Turner, Chic-Fil-A, Comcast, Coca Cola, DLA Piper, The Franklin Foundation, Equifax, and Alston & Bird make this evening possible. Private donors like Carol + Paul Garcia, the Cavanaugh family, Sandy + Jessica Douglas, Cristin + Joey Odom, and Marianne + E.G. Lassiter are also incredibly generous and involved supporters of the Covenant House.
The Covenant House GA is not just a shelter for homeless youth in Atlanta, but a tight organization and network of people devoted to transforming lives through educational, medical, career assistant, and the teachings of general self-sufficiency. How to balance a checkbook and create a budget. Covenant House Georgia is a place of refuge, a place of growing, and a place where people find and fulfill their calling. I am proud to partner with them and document such special evenings where amazing talent and phenomenally generous hearts come together to change the lives of our youth. For the better.
