Gather in the Gardens 2022 Was a Success!

It was great to Gather in the Gardens once again this year! Here are some moments from the event.

The garden was beautiful, the weather cooperative, the food delicious, the libations flowing, the entertainment delightful, and the attendees gracious.

THANK YOU to all who attended, all who participated in the auction, to the host committee, the volunteers, the in-kind donors, our sponsors, our board of directors, and to the vendors who helped make it all happen.

All told, we raised $91,000! We are humbled and grateful. A thousand times THANKS.

A special shout-out goes to the Atlanta Bourbon Society. ABS board member Jason Spoeth says they are “a private group of whiskey aficionados with a passion for picking one-of-a-kind bourbons and supporting non-profits along the way.” Not only did ABS sponsor the event at the top Flourish level, but during the bidding for the “Bourbon Bonanza” auction item, ABS added two one-of-a-kind surprise bottles: the first single barrel ever picked of Shortbarrel Kentucky bourbon aged 6.5 years and distilled by Barton Distillery; and a bottle of Russell's Reserve Kentucky bourbon aged 9 years which “was the absolute best barrel of only 8 barrels picked in the state of Georgia in 2021,” says Spoeth.

By the end of the evening, the ABS members were brainstorming with Development Director Tonja Holder about ideas for next year. Stay tuned….
