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

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

For seven 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 (closed on Mondays) so visitors to the

Gardens can enjoy the various scarecrow-type exhibits. Each year we submit a different version of the Thrift Witch. Every year, the creative team of members make her costume from donations to our thrift store, Attic Treasures, which is why we call her the Thrift Witch.

Annual Glitz & Glam Sale

All year long, we set aside glamorous clothes, furs, shoes, handbags and jewelry for our special Glitz and Glam Sale each fall. Every 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.

Golf Tournament

On Monday October 2, 2023, Assistance League of Atlanta hosted its sixth annual charity golf tournament at Bear’s Best Golf Course in Suwanee, GA.  The event included championship golf, breakfast, snacks, buffet lunch, prizes for play, fifty-fifty drawing & a silent auction. Prizes were awarded for 1st place teams (men’s and women’s), Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive & Long Putt Contest. To give back to those who give so much to us, first responders were invited to play a free round of golf thanks to generous sponsors.

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! This year our entourage included our decorated van with members walking along beside and a convertible with our Chapter President, Jo Stage, on board waving to the parade onlookers with her granddaughter Olivia. It’s fun and patriotic and we love doing it!

Fashion Shows

Our custom, on-your-site fashion shows, featuring Attic Treasures upscale clothing, shoes and accessories, are wildly popular!  If you would like to host a fashion show, email PR@AssistanceLeagueATL.org.. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase the modeled items, including jewelry. You’ll be surprised at the quality and pizzazz of our fashions!

City of Peachtree Corners Festival

Our Philanthropic Center is located in Peachtree Corners, so we look forward to participating in the city’s annual celebration. The festival features arts and crafts, live music, a car show, great food and free parking. At our Assistance League booth, we sold items from Attic Treasures. Our Halloween costumes were a big hit this year! We  also enjoyed sharing with those who stopped by our booth the good works we do through our philanthropic programs. This year the festival was held in the Peachtree Corners Town Green.

Assistance League ACTION! Week

ACTION! Week is an annual event held the last week in February to help less fortunate children in our community. In 2023, we provided books to promote literacy and we expanded the idea of giving a book to a child by also giving them a Beanie Baby “buddy” and a healthy snack to make it really special. These items were packed up in ziploc bags with our label “Have Fun Reading With a Friend.”  We delivered 50 bags each to Norcross and Carey Reynolds Elementary Schools. The school counselors distributed the book packages to the students.
