The Power of Giving Back

The Power of Giving Back…

 

The one thing that is so precious and can’t be given back when lost is time.  So, when thousands of people gather together for a specific cause, then that should duly note.

On September 16th in Atlanta, thousands of us walked together to end Alzheimer’s.  We could not have asked for a better day… the weather, the energy, and the cause were well worth our time and effort.  For the past four years, Real Chicks Rock!™ has joined the Team 'We Walk By Faith' lead by Team Captain Shaun Williams to raise money and awareness against this illness.  Each year continues to exceed the previous year's donations and for that we're thankful.  Mark your calendars for next year, come out and join us as we Walk to End Alzheimers®

We always are relieved when the hurricane season can come and go with no impacts to the islands in the Caribbean.  Unfortunately, this year has not been the case and hurricane season is far from over.  The devastation from Hurricane Harvey, Irma and other hurricanes that are coming behind those have weighed us all down with concern.  There have been several deaths, no power, no clean water and no place to live for thousands.  Here in Atlanta are committed to helping, however, we can.  We’ve collected bags of clothing for the hurricane victims with more on the way.   Every little bit helps so be sure to donate whatever you can when you can.

7th Annual Atlanta Ice Cream Festival 2017

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream! 

Ice Cream is one thing that most people enjoy and can't seem to get enough of it. For the past 7 years, the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival has been held in downtown Atlanta at The Meadows at Piedmont Park and this year's event was a great success. 


This free family fun event is always open to the public. The festival was an all day event from 11 am to 6 pm with every possible style and flavor of ice cream you could think of. Over 120 vendors and sponsors participated. There were amazing Live entertainment and lots of activities were going on for kids to the adults; Wellness Activities like Yoga, Exercise routines, and the kid's zone were available. It was a nice day and the best time to get out and have some fun in the sun. 


We give thanks to the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival for allowing Real Chicks Rock! to come on board as a sponsor this year.  It was a wonderful opportunity and experience of connecting with the many facets of people (close to 20,000 people) who participated.  We look forward to joining forces with AICF in 2018.
