The reception will be catered by Chef Rob and Atlanta Bread Company.
A cash bar will be available. The reception is free to attend; however

Is there a local charitable organization that you’d really like to
recognize? Please consider nominating a deserving organization to receive
the chapter’s annual December financial donation made in support of
work of a local charity. The only way an organization can be considered
is to be nominated by a member of the Mobile chapter.
If you’d like to nominate a local nonprofit organization to receive this year’s
gift, please do! Simply email your nominations to email@example.com by
November 1 with the phrase “charity nomination” in the email subject line. The
nominated charities will be compiled onto a ballot and voting will take place
at the conference.
And, speaking of the conference – time is running out to register. November 18
