Open Hand Atlanta

Atlanta Liaison Fundraiser

"The Atlanta Liaison committee partnered with The Alliance Theatre, The New American Shakespeare Tavern, The Atlanta Lyric Theatre, Aurora Theatre, ART Station; Georgia Ensemble Theatre, Stage Door Players, and the Atlanta Ballet, to raise funds for Open Hand Atlanta during the holiday season. Open Hand, which recently commemorated its 24th year of service and the delivery of our twenty millionth meal, has grown to become the nation’s largest community-based provider of home-delivered meals. Open Hand prepares, packs and delivers more than 5,000 meals every day across 17 north Georgia counties. Open Hand is the only non-profit organization providing Comprehensive Nutrition Care™, which combines nutritious, medically-appropriate meals with nutrition education, therapy and coaching for homebound seniors and underserved individuals struggling with chronic, critical or terminal illness. Bill Murphey, Liaison committee member, coordinated the fund drive. Committee members, Atlanta members, and the casts and crew of the running productions, collected money after shows. The generous patrons of these theatres contributed an amazing $11,029.39 for this wonderful and deserving organization."
