Over the last ten years, City Lifestyle’s dedication to the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance (GOCA) has changed the way people think about ovarian cancer. Whether advertising the “Teal Trot” or “Teal to Heal” the stories in the magazines have always been about the survivors.
Jim Newman, the publisher of Buckhaven, Alpharetta, and Johns Creek City Lifestyle magazines, along with Sue Collins and Karyn Slovin, have dedicated themselves to telling the stories of real people who live in our communities.
“One of the key principles and goals of City Lifestyle is to support our community and give back as much as possible,” says Jim. “GOCA is the perfect partner.”
"Our partnership with GOCA has been organic. We are in the business of storytelling and community building and their work is so meaningful,” says Sue. “It's been our pleasure to support their work, shine the light on some amazing volunteers, and honor the families who are forever changed by ovarian cancer."
Highlighting individual survivor stories while profiling GOCA’s most memorable annual fundraising events, offering you, our readers, a chance to get up close with women and their ovarian cancer journey. We were all really impacted by their stories of survival and we learned the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer.
In honor of the ongoing support and dedication to ovarian cancer awareness, the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance is proud to celebrate City Lifestyle magazines by honoring them with the Virginia “Ginger” Ackerman Above and Beyond Award.
The Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance is celebrating its 25th Anniversary on March 11 at Georgia Aquarium. For more information or to purchase tickets please visit GAOvarianCancer.org/programs/shaken-not-stirred-gala/
