The VENZA’s 3rd Annual Charity Event: Our Biggest Yet!

(Alpharetta, GA – October 26nd, 2010) By sponsoring their 3rd Annual Charity Benefit fundraiser, the Venza Group delivered much needed acknowledgement and outreach for Georgia’s foster and adoptive families. Hundreds of attendees opened their hearts and wallets to support Supporting Adoption and Foster Families Together (SAFFT), a Georgia-based not-for-profit that provides supportive foundations to improve the lives of children in care.

This year’s event raised $7,685 from a silent auction as well as raffle ticket sales. Event attendees enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and, for the second year in a row, a live musical performance by the Tom Willner Trio. Mother Nature cooperated once again by blessing the event with a beautiful autumn evening. Due to growth in attendance, this year the event was held at The Diner at North Point, owned and managed by the same magnanimous restaurateurs who own the Sage Woodfire Tavern (where the event was held in previous years).

Raffle tickets were drawn throughout the evening. A wide range of prizes, from LA Fitness memberships to SpaSydell Gift Certificates, were awarded. This year, two lucky winners took home an iPod Touch (donated by Hotel Concepts and Brilliant Hotel Software). The silent auction included sports and music memorabilia from legends such as Chipper Jones (of the Atlanta Braves), Muhammad Ali, Sting, Taylor Swift, and Dave Matthews.

Ashley Anderson, SAFFT Director, said the following about their collaboration with the Venza Group and Music for Charities: “We at SAFFT were so honored to be a part of The Venza Group’s 3rd Annual Charity Benefit. Our programs rely heavily on community support and donations and the children and families in crisis reap so much harvest through the funding provided by the generous attendees and donors of this event. As Executive Director and Founder, without this event our organization would not be able to make the difference every day without companies such as The Venza Group. We cannot thank them enough for their kind hosting and support!”

The Venza Group threw the party to celebrate this year’s growth and development, an extraordinary feat for any organization in 2010. The Southeast’s most trusted training services consulting firm, the Venza Group sponsored the event along with InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), Agilysys, Hospitality Upgrade Magazine, Genesee General, TechTeam, CCCi, and RealViewTV.

Community involvement is just one way the Venza Group causes breakthrough possibilities and generates results for people and organizations. With an authentic commitment to community-wide compassion, the Venza Group frequently contributes to Music for Charities events to benefit organizations including, but not limited to, SAFFT.
