The Church at Ponce & Highland is raising money to build a playground for the neighborhood, and needs your help. The cost of the project is slated at $30,000, but thanks to a generous anonymous donor, the church has a matching grant that will double any donation. If you would like to make a contribution, visit this link through the end of the month.

The community art nonprofit organization, Evolving Arts of America, will host its ‘party for a purpose’ fundraiser mixer event on Friday, Nov. 10.

The event will be held at the Blank Canvas event space in Castleberry Hill, Atlanta, GA at 7 p.m. Evolving Arts of America will feature a silent auction for art pieces, performances and live art presentation.
