Hands On Atlanta will celebrate its 30th Birthday on April 13 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Manuel’s Tavern, where the organization hosted its first ever fundraising event, back in 1989.
Presented by the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, the party will include a silent auction featuring over 60 unique items and experiences, a live acoustic performance by IAMDYNAMITE, and an open bar with heavy appetizers and desserts. Hands On Atlanta will award Mayor Shirley Franklin as its 2019 Changemaker of the Year, and WSB-TV anchor Fred Blankenship will be the guest emcee for the evening.
Hands On Atlanta began in 1989 when 12 friends, struggling to find volunteer opportunities in Atlanta. What began as a discussion over beers and burgers at Manuel’s has become one of the largest volunteer organizations in the world, connecting 20,000 volunteers annually with over 150 non-profit and school partners.
