Under The Harvest Moon Gala Benefitting Neighbor In Need Slated for October

Invalid Displayed Gallery


By Andrea Cleary
Neighbor in Need and the East Atlanta Community Association (EACA) are joining forces to co-host their first joint charity fundraiser, Under the Harvest Moon. This gala will benefit the East Atlanta chapter of Neighbor in Need. The event will take place at the historic Zuber-Jarrell House at 810 Flat Shoals Avenue on Saturday, October 15, from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. Owners Jennifer Murray and Mark Dobiecki have graciously offered their home and grounds to host this event.
Neighbor in Need is a nonprofit, 501c3 under the EACA umbrella. The purpose of Neighbor in Need is to help seniors in the immediate area make urgent and necessary repairs to their homes. Since its founding in 2010, 106 repairs have been made in 35 East Atlanta homes, totaling $105,000. The 2017 fundraising goal is to double the operating budget and spend $40,000 on repairs during that year.
Rain or shine, this inaugural fundraiser will take place. There will be a large tent, live music, silent auction, and a Harvest Moon Photo Booth. Look forward to sampling spectacular small bites from area chefs, paired with celestial libations. Come dressed up in your denim, satin, and cowboy-boot best, and dance under the stars to the sweet sounds of Penny Serenade. Meet new neighbors, contractors who have performed work for the organization, and history buffs, or see old friends. General admission tickets are $50 early, $65 after September 16. VIP tickets are $100 if purchased early and $125 after September 16.
VIP ticket holders get early entrance to the event at 6:00pm, a private cocktail reception on the grand front porch, and unlimited beverages throughout the evening. In addition, VIPs get an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the home led by special docent Douglas Frey which includes access to rarely seen areas of the house. This 110-year-old, Neoclassical home is the only home in the area listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is being lovingly restored to its former glory, under the supervision of architect Doug Frey. General admission is 7:00pm and includes food, some drinks (others available for purchase), and a docent-led tour. Proceeds from this event will help keep seniors safe in their homes.
Preparations are well underway, but help is still needed. The organizers are looking for a photographer (or two) to help man the photo booth and donations for the silent auction, as well as businesses or individuals who are interested in helping sponsor the event. If you’d like to volunteer for the photography booth, donate to, or sponsor the event, please contact Nancy Carpenter at nancy.carpenter1@gmail.com.
Tickets are limited. For more information, visit the Neighbor in Need Facebook page. Purchase your tickets on the EACA.net website at http://eaca.net/?pageid=4129.
