Wanted! People to help stop crime…and have fun doing it
Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta 2012 Blue Jean Ball October 13 at the Atlanta History Center
Help make Atlanta safer by supporting the Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta Reward Fund. Crime Stoppers’ 2012 Blue Jean Ball is October 13 at the Atlanta History Center’s Tullie Smith Farm. Denim-clad guests will enjoy a night of music, barbecue and fun with friends and neighbors.
“By pledging early, strong support, our sponsors are helping ensure the evening will accomplish its ultimate goal: Having a direct impact in taking criminals off the street,” says Hala Moddelmog, President of Arby's Restaurant Group, who is serving as Honorary Chair, along with her husband Steve. “And while our purpose for the organization and the evening is quite serious, we’re pleased that the event will be a relaxed good time.”
Music will be provided by Bogey & The Viceroy and food is by LowCountry Barbecue. The 2011 Blue Jean Ball raised more than $65,000, which translates to 32 dangerous predators taken off our streets and preventing more than 320 additional crimes from ever being committed. Moddelmog says this year’s fundraising goal is $100,000.
“The Blue Jean Ball is a great night of fun and a way for citizens to come together and take an active role in keeping neighborhoods safe,” Ellis says. “You can network with like-minded people and businesses who also are investing in the safety of our community.”
