Neighbor in Need (NIN) and EACA would like to extend a HUGE “Thank You”, to all sponsors, both financial and in-kind, for the generous donations to the October fundraiser, Under the Harvest Moon Gala, which was a magical evening. It included a cooperative sky with a full moon, delicious Mediterranean cuisine, themed beverages, lively music, a range of silent auction items, and tours of the beautiful Zuber-Jarrell House, made possible by generous hosts, Mark Dobiecki and Jenny Murray, current owners of the home. The East Atlanta community came out as volunteers, sponsors and guests and had a blast. These contributions enable the organization to more effectively assist low income seniors with emergency home repairs.
From a fundraising standpoint as well, the event was a huge success. A large number of generous pre-event cash donations amounting to $13,000 from the East Atlanta Foundation, City Council Member Natalyn Archibong District 5, Sabrina Faragoza of Elder Tree, Edgewood Retail District, Ricardo Sandoval of Bell Roofing, Mark Dobiecki of Commander LLC, Darlene Conley of Highland Realty, Robert Downs of Downs Capital, and Dr. Annie Price of Ormewood Animal Hospital. Over $7,200 was raised through ticket sales, which covered the up-front, necessary expenses of putting on the event. The Silent Auction raised over $2,500 in additional funds.
Estimated $11,400 in-kind donations helped offset the costs of putting on this event, as well. Those sponsors include: Endive Catering; Sweet Cheats; LLC, Old Fourth Ward Distillery; The Argosy; Brothers that Brew; Berea Mennonite Church; Cal’s Tree Service, East Atlanta Copy Center; Eagle Rock Distributing; The Elder Tree Public House; Gaja; Gate City Brewing Company; The Glenwood; Holy Taco; Instant One Media; Andy Cleary; Indelible Marks LLC; Annalise Kaylor Photography; Kommune Group; Midway Pub; Motovino,; Marc Takacs, Atlanta In-Town Keller Williams; The Glenwood; Traci Sampson of Traci with an Eye Graphic Design, LLC; Midway Pub; Whitney Horne, Licensed Insurance Agent; Yeast Atlanta; and The East Atlanta Strut.
With fundraisers like this and huge support from the East Atlanta community in all forms, the Neighbor In Need mission continues to keep long-term residents safe and comfortable in their homes in East Atlanta.
