InCommunity, Georgia’s largest provider of services to individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities, is hosting its 31st Annual Spring Benefit Gala on Saturday, April 27th at the gorgeous Loew’s Atlanta Hotel in Midtown. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m. and will be followed by a seated dinner, specialty cocktails and an evening of entertainment provided by Lulu the Giant and a Live DJ. This year’s event will feature the wonderful master auctioneer, Dean Crownover.
Special thanks to this year’s Presenting Sponsor, Abernathy Bank Consulting and Platinum Sponsor, CTS Systems, Inc. The fundraising proceeds will go directly to support the individuals with developmental disabilities that InCommunity supports.

We would like to thank this year’s Gala Chairs, Bill and Shirley Abernathy, Mark and Kay Lewington and Brent and Anita Atkinson for stepping up to host this grand event.
