Community Leaders Host "Chair-ity" Event for the Children's Village aat Christian City

Congressman Lynn Westmoreland, Senator Ronnie Chance, Senator Mitch Seabaugh as well as Fayette County's four State Representatives, three Fayette Mayors,and other well known members of the community are joining together to support Christian City's ministry to abandoned and abused children this Christmas by hosting a "Char-ity" Event at the Hollingsworth House in Fayetteville.

All proceeds will help the children who live in the cottages at Christian City to have a wonderful holiday season including buying gifts, holiday meals with all the trimmings, winter coats and clothing and to help buffer the many other operational costs this winter.

Over 20 local artisans including Vicki Turner, Patsy Gullet and Cressida Chance have painted unique and beautiful chairs which will be auctioned off in a silent auction.

The owners of the Hollingsworth House, Craig and Belinda Fitch, are inviting guests and the general public to drop in on Monday, December 1st from 5:00pm to 7:30pm and support this very worthy cause.

The event is volunteer driven and is being sponsored by over 50 local businesses including Truett Cathy and Chick-fil-A, Greystone Power, Metro Catering, AT&T, Georgia Power and BB&T Reece Insurance to name a few.

Tickets are $20 each and due to popular demand must be purchased in advance by calling Lauren at 770-964-3309.
