Loans By Kathy: Taste of the Nation - Georgia Aquarium April 12th

Taste of the Nation - Georgia Aquarium April 12th

The statistics are in.  One in five children do not know when they will have their next meal.  As the economy has taken a beating over the last few years, the number of children in need continues to increase.  Proper nutrition is critical in childhood development.  Studies show that good nutrition will impact overall health and learning abilities.  

The arrival of spring means that it is also time for the most successful charity event for the Atlanta Food Bank and Share Our Strength.  The Taste of the Nation is the ultimate "foodie" event as 50 of Atlanta's best restaurants and chefs will be on hand to offer a sampling of their unique dishes.  

Now. don't forget to bring your checkbook too!  There will be a live auctiona and a silent auction too with a variety of restuarant dinner packages; wines and other spirits; and a variety of other items.  

This year's event will be held on April 12th at the Georgia Aquarium.  I have included the links for the event and Share Our Strength.

Share our Strength has one goal, to end childhood hunger in the USA by 2015.  We have a long way to go and really could use your help.

Hope to you see you there!

Kathy, this is a very worthy cause that the Georgia Aquarium is sponsoring on April 12. Taste of the Nation will be fun and no doubt raise a lot of money :)

Sharon, it is a great event and our biggest fundraiser of the year.  Update to follow!

Kathy - I think this is an American shame. We (even though the economy has not been good) are a rich nation and should be taking care of our hungry right here.  I hope it is a great turnout.

We have a Taste of the Nation here, too, but I don't know what charities it sponsors. 

And, as a side note, do you remember the old Mary Tyler Moore theme?  Your're going to make it after all! 

So, here's a pre-congratulatory toast!

Toni, I first became involved with SOS in the mid 90's.  It is really a crime that the problem still persists.

Suzanne, what I like about this event is that the money that is raised in Atlanta, stays in Atlanta.

Great cause, Kathy.  And, keep up the great work you are doing.  Congrats on the move, too.

Kathy- If ever there was a worthy cause it would be the Taste of the Nation at the Georgia Aquarium on April 12th.  It is just over whelming at how many go hungry in the land that is the most blessed.  A great post on paying it forward my friend.
