Right Brain Ball

By Latha Nair-Erickson
P.T. Barnum once said, “The noblest art is that of making others happy.”
Attending The Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School’s 9th annual auction and raffle will make everyone happy.
That’s right. It’s that time of year again. On March 3, 200 Peachtree Street, formerly the old Macy’s building, will be transformed into an auction house. This year’s event is called the “Right Brain Ball” and is a celebration of creativity in all of its forms. Artwork, vacation homes, and fabulous gift baskets…oh my. You can participate in silent and live auctions and the raffle packages value in excess of $1,000 each.
Tickets cost $25 in advance, and $35 at the door, which is a bargain considering you get great food catered by Endive, good music by The Wallbangers, and humor by the fabulous emcee, Hollis Gillespie. Even parking is included in the ticket price. What more could you want?
Proceeds of course go towards The Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School. The school needs to raise about $1,500 per student to make up for what they don’t get from Atlanta Public Schools and the State of Georgia.
Unmatched student teacher ratios, music, art and foreign languages are all important necessities to help our children thrive, but this comes at a price. The Right Brain Ball is one of the best money raising events to support the kids and the neighborhood. So which side of your brain do you usually use? Who cares… come out and give both sides of your brain a great time.
