There’s so much to celebrate and we can’t wait to see you at the event which includes dinner and silent auction.  And, YES, award-winning journalist Jocelyn Dorsey, WSB-TV (retired) and Emmy nominated actor Michael Kelly, House of Cards/Jack Ryan, have both been invited back to emcee.

The reception begins at 6pm with plenty of time to greet old friends, meet new friends and bid at auction tables.  Dinner is served in the beautiful GA Aquarium Oceans Ballroom where we’ll honor the people who inspired our lives.  And we always close early enough to be on your way home with plenty of great memories and the satisfaction of knowing you did something great!


Can’t do anything without our generous sponsors!  If you or your organization is interested in sponsorship, please view our Sponsorship Packet here or contact us at

If you can’t join us at the Gala this year, please consider a tax deductible donation to the Thanks Mom & Dad Fund.

Honor Wall

All Dedication Table sponsors (and higher) have the opportunity to honor someone at their table the night of the event.  You, too, can join the fun and post your honoree on the Honor Wall.

Do you have a mentor, leader, or someone you would like to honor? The Honor Wall is a unique and special opportunity to honor that person. Posting a photo and sentiment of that special person  (or two!) and their guests will spend the evening celebrating and saying “thanks” while supporting an important cause. Ready to say Thanks A Million?  Visit the Honor Wall today!
