The Garden Hills Garden Club’s 39th annual Garden Hills Ice Cream Social will take place Sunday, Sept. 26, from noon to 5 p.m. at the Garden Hills Pool and Park complex at the intersection of Pinetree Drive and Rumson Road. The event is free to the public, but on-site children’s activities such as games, arts and crafts, pony rides, train rides, a dunk tank, and more will raise proceeds through ticket sales.
Since its inception, the Garden Hills Ice Cream Social has raised tens of thousands of dollars to support the local community. Proceeds from the event directly benefit the Garden Hills community. Past events have supported the Atlanta Fire Department, Station 21; the Atlanta Police Department, Zone 2; Breakthrough Atlanta; and the Buckhead Branch of the Atlanta-Fulton County Public Library.
“Part of what makes our neighborhood so remarkable is the true sense of community shared between the residents and the individuals who comprise our public resources,” says Andrea Miller, event co-chair. “We invite families from around the city to join the Garden Hills Community at our annual ice cream social to celebrate our neighborhood as a model for what makes Atlanta great.”
