Opportunity to support GA Cares

Dear Tony,

Georgia Cares is inviting you to the 2019 Mastering the Art Gala. We are celebrating a decade of service, ensuring all victims of child sex trafficking receive quality care in the state of Georgia! This event is our largest annual fundraiser and will feature live entertainment, a seated dinner, program, and silent auction. We will be celebrating Georgia Cares’ impact across the state and the resilience of the youth we serve. The youths’ voice will be featured through an artwork display – giving them the opportunity to express their journey of healing through art. All funds raised will go to support and expand Georgia Cares’ victim services.

Please see the attached e-invitation. For more details and to register, visit our website at: https://donate.gacares.org/event/mastering-the-art-celebrating-10-years-of-service Also, please feel free to share with the members of the Rotary as well!

Thank you for your time and I hope to see you at the Gala!
