Community Events

Assistance League of Atlanta participates in community events for visibility and fundraising, increasing our ability to help those at risk.

Annual Glitz and Glam Sale

All year long, we set aside glamorous clothes, furs, shoes, handbags and jewelry for our special Glitz and Glam Sale each fall.  In early November, shoppers are invited to get their glam on and buy their holiday finery at Attic Treasures. There is something for everyone in the family, even the children.

Assistance League’s ‘Thrift Witch’ visits Atlanta Botanical Gardens every October

For four consecutive years Assistance League of Atlanta has participated in the Atlanta Botanical Gardens’, ‘Scarecrows in the Garden’ event. The event takes place throughout the entire month of October so visitors to the Gardens can enjoy the various scarecrow-type exhibits. Each year we submit a different version of the ‘Thrift Witch.’ This year, she appeared as “Ann BOOleyn.”  Every year, the creative team of members make her costume entirely from donations from our thrift store, Attic Treasures, which is why we call her the ‘Thrift Witch.’

Golf Tournament

On Monday October 19, 2020, Assistance League of Atlanta hosted its third annual golf tournament – DRIVING “FORE”WARD – at Bear’s Best Golf Course in Suwanee, GA.  The event included championship golf, breakfast, snacks, lunch on the course, prizes for play, fifty-fifty drawing & a silent auction. Prizes were awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams, Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive & Long Putt Contest at the Turn. To give back to those who give so much to us, generous donors sponsored over 40 area police and firemen so they could enjoy a free round of golf. We had over 100 players in all participating in this year’s tournament.

Assistance League ACTION! Week – 2020

ACTION! Week is a National Assistance League annual event with over 100 chapters across the U.S. helping less fortunate children experience the transformation that having someone care about them can make. While the chapters choose to celebrate ACTION! Week in their own unique way, we are all working together in a common purpose of helping children in need.This year, Assistance League of Atlanta, addressed hunger among school children in our community through our new pilot program, Backpack Buddies, which provides food for children who might otherwise lack meals over the weekend by sending them home with a backpack of food on Fridays



Fashion Shows

Our custom, on-your-site fashion shows, featuring Attic Treasures upscale clothing, shoes and accessories, are wildly popular! We have held five shows this fiscal year. If you would like to host a fashion show, contact us. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase the modeled items, including jewelry. You’ll be surprised at the quality and pizzazz of our fashions!

March into Chick-fil-A

In the spring, we partner with the Jett Ferry Road Chick-fil-A® in Dunwoody for this shoe extravaganza event. Customers, large and small, donate gently used shoes, and Chick-fil-A gives them a free Original Chicken Sandwich – a win-win for all. Donated shoes are sold in the shop and proceeds fund shoe purchases for Operation School Bell® students, some of whom never had a new pair of shoes.

Dunwoody July 4 Parade

The Dunwoody July 4 parade is the largest in the state of Georgia. This event has become one of our long-standing traditions, having participated since 2004 – rain or shine! Our entourage usually consists of a truck, decorated with items from our thrift shop or information about our programs and a convertible with our President on board. Our ground troops carry signs and give out candy to the parade watchers. It’s fun and patriotic and we love doing it!
