Community Assistance Center celebrates quarter century with Vintage Affair

September 25, 2012 by  

The 10th Vintage Affair, to be held at Dunwoody’s Retreat at Perimeter Summit, is set to be an affair to remember, as the Community Assistance Center (CAC) celebrates 25 years.

The chairperson of Vintage Affair, Shelly Dozier-McKee, has promised that the evening will be a formal affair with dancing. The annual fundraising event aims to raise $100,000 for the Sandy Springs Community Assistance Center, and has a formal dress code of cocktail attire.

Dozier-McKee hopes that the event will bring together all those who have previously been helped by the center in Sandy Springs. According to Dozier-McKee, the ballroom will be lavishly decorated with tones of red to accentuate the theme for the evening and the logo of the CAC. As the event will also celebrate the silver anniversary of the CAC, the nonprofit organization is holding a silver drive to get items to auction.

There will be other attractions at the event to help raise money, including cocktails created specially for the CAC event, called the Silver Heart, the CAC cooler, and the Tango-tini. There will be beer tasting and the addition of seven restaurants, who will prepare a line-up of appetizers.

The event will be held this Saturday, September 29, in Dunwoody. Although the tickets are likely to sell fast, the organization will possibly use local stationery printers to publicize the event. In 2011, over 5,000 families and individuals were helped by the non-profit organization, with some of the clients now working as members of staff.
