Proud Partner | 11th Annual Give Me Five For No Kid Hungry Raises Over $90,000

The Atlanta Food & Lifestyle Bloggers’ Society was a proud in-kind partner with this campaign.

On August 27th, the Atlanta Athletic Club was buzzing with over 350 guests in attendance for the 11th annual Give Me Five Dinner for No Kid Hungry. When all was said and done, the silent auction, live auction during dinner, tickets sold, and donations, the national non-profit raised over $90,000; of which 100% of all proceeds went to help end childhood hunger in Georgia and across the United States.

  1. They sound like an amazing organisation and it’s great that you got involved. The dinner sounds amazing and it so great that so much money was raised! It must have been so interesting to hear everyone’s experiences!

    1. Thanks, Corinne & Kirsty. Being involved with such an amazing organization and doing our part to help raise money to feed Ameican kids is a very gratifying and heartwarming experience. Speaking personally for myself, hearing what the speakers had to say and the kids on the big screens were the highlight of the evening. Very proud to be part of it.

    1. Thanks, Amber; $90,000 is a very impressive number. A lot of people and a lot of hard work goes into this campaign and they all deserve credit, but I have to say the biggest thank you goes to all who opened their wallets.

  2. AWESOME!! Such a large amount for such a great cause! I personally love going to these charity events. You always feel so good helping others!

  3. I can’t stand the thought of children being hungry (and yes I know all about the third world countries) it is so devastating. I think this is an excellent cause and I am so glad it raised that much money.

  4. Such causes should be promoted worldwide and marketed by such events at least monthly! There’s still so much poverty in India as well.. There needs to be more awareness & charity! Good to hear about this.

  5. This campaign sounds like it was an awesome campaign for No Kid Hungry. It is amazing that $90,000 was raised for this amazing cause. Thanks for sharing your awesome experience.

    1. You know what Kim? It hadn’t even occurred to me, at least consciously, that I had a hand in making a difference. Thanks for reminding me; you made my day!

  6. Congrats! thats a beautiful thing. I’m a huge fan of volunteering and giving back. 90k is A LOT of money and i’m sure it will go a long way.
