Local artists, sponsors, hosts, community leaders, and volunteers, came together on December 3, 2015, for the “Chair-ity” Event benefitting The Children’s Village at Christian City. This special event is named for the unique chairs – decorated and donated by community artists – that are included in the event’s silent auction. More than $120,000 was raised to support the ongoing needs of the abandoned, abused, and neglected children who now live safely at The Children’s Village at Christian City.


Wanda Shaw of Griffin GA won the Lexus NX 200t raffled off by south side Rotary clubs to benefit The Children’s Village! Click the image to visit rotarycares4kids.org to see the drawing video.

The 9th annual Chair-ity event at The Dolce/Aberdeen Woods in Peachtree City featured hors d’oeuvres and refreshments, live jazz by the Rick Massengale Trio, and holiday shopping via a silent auction. The event also included a raffle drawing for a new SUV provided by Lexus of South Atlanta. Southside Rotary Clubs came together to raise money for The Children’s Village by raffling a Lexus NX 200t. The winner of the raffle was Wanda D. Shaw of Griffin, Georgia. Visit the rotarycares4kids.org website to see the drawing video clip.
