Jack and Jill of America, Inc,. Atlanta Chapter served as the host of the sold out event. The organization is focused on nurturing future leaders and since 1951, the chapter has been committed to community service and making life better for all children through philanthropic giving, leadership training, legislative advocacy and social activities. 

Local charities along with the Jack and Jill Foundation benefit greatly from the donations raised by the Atlanta Chapter. In several cases, the non-profit is actually able to hire an additional staff member for a year with the contribution. 

  • AFLAC Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta- provides comprehensive treatment for children and young adults with all forms of cancer and blood disorders
  • Carrie Steele-Pitts Home- a non-profit providing community-based child welfare services including after school care, fitness programs and 24-hour and state-approved residency for vulnerable youth
