So many gathered together on Saturday, May 4, to make our annual fundraising gala such a success! From vendors to volunteers, sponsors to staff, guests to garden flowers, all the elements conspired to create a wonderful evening that brought in $90,000 toward Frazer’s inclusion programs for children and adults with and without disabilities.

What an honor it was to have George Atkins and the family of the late Walter Moeling with us as we paid tribute to these two gentlemen for their decades of service and commitment to Frazer’s mission.

By the time the rain began, we were all comfortably nestled underneath the tenting from Atlanta Party Rentals. Special thanks goes to the Sun In My Belly catering staff who had to brave the weather to keep the amazing dinner service flowing.

The Auction Eventworks staff kept things lively during the live auction, and we’re pretty sure some tears were flowing during the screening of the beautiful videos shot and edited by Benny Wonka.

Event Committee Chair Joel Perkins makes any gathering a party! We couldn’t have done it without him as well as the entire board.

Working the Bourbon, Bubbles & Bling bar and representing the Seed & Feed Marching Abominables—sans instruments—were Joann Cebulski and Sam Garofalo, recruited by their fellow band member and Frazer Center CEO Paige McKay Kubik. Thank you!

And it’s always a special day when members of the Cator Woolford family are here. Thank you, Cator Sparks, Angela and Andy Sparks, Brian and Angela Brossard, and Robert and Ashley Brett.
