Mountains Moved

Thank YOU for ‘Celebrating 30 Years of Moving Mountains’ with us on Saturday, February 15th at The Hotel at Avalon. Through your generosity $265,000 net was raised during the Gala that evening, which when added to money raised prior to the event brought in a grand total of $336,000 net raised towards the mission of bringing help and healing to the families of North Fulton.

The good news is that together we raised 25% of the Summit’s annual fundraising budget through the Summit Gala to help continue moving the mountains of stigma, accessibility and affordability as we move in the direction of our vision that everyone who needs professional counseling will receive it.

Gratitude Expressed

As always, to pull off an event of Biblical proportions it takes a cast of people the size of a Cecille B. Demille movie. (Think Ben Hur or The Ten Commandments). Thanks, are appropriately in order to so many people for making an evening like this possible. Thank you to our sponsors, most notably our presenting sponsor, The Will To Live Foundation; our speakers, Russ Spencer, John & Susie Trautwein, Tai Anderson, Ansley Parker; and of course, our very special guest, Amy Grant.

Internally it takes a village as well. Many thanks to Captain Barbara Williams and our Gala Committee; our dozens of volunteers, and our Summit staff including our development team who labored tirelessly for months to make this event our most successful event in Summit Counseling history. And last but not least, we cannot forget, the James Brown (hardest working man) of the Charity Benefit Auctioneer business, Mr. Dean Crownover! 

Invitation Extended

I hope that you will stay engaged as a Summit supporter throughout the year and make the Summit your first choice for community service in 2020 and in the decade ahead, both personally as well as through your workplace.

Two major fund-raising events remain this calendar year; The Summit Golf Classic on Monday, June 22, 2020 and Summit Rocks on Saturday, October 10, 2020. We are already looking for sponsors for these events as well as next year’s Summit Gala on Saturday, March 27, 2021.

Please let me know if you or your company are interested in sponsoring your favorite Summit Event. We simply can’t do what we do (help thousands of kids and families) without YOU.

Memories Shared

Photographs from the evening are available on the Summit Gala Gallery section of our Gala page.

With heartfelt gratitude,
