Eat, Drink and Dance the Night Away!
Eat & Drink: You won’t believe the food at the Cheer for Children Ball. And these chefs are the reason. The Atlanta Chefs Association provides the wonderful eats at our Ball every year. Enjoy the evening with our open bar (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks served). And don’t forget to arrange for a cab, Uber or designated driver!
Dance: We have selected an absolutely marvelous band for this year’s Cheer for Children Ball: The Anita & Party Life! This is an exciting and interactive party band, but also a group with deep-rooted musical sophistication. Sound level is kept to a perfect volume and their song list is extremely diverse, featuring the musical history of the past 50 years. The audience is the star as Anita and band are 100% wireless and deliver their musical magic in the crowd with the audience, as well as bringing the audience on stage as appropriate.
