Atlanta’s favorite penny pincher, Clark Howard, will host an April 28 event at his Buckhead home at which tickets will cost $500.
As the super-frugal Clark might exclaim, “Five HUNDRED dollars???”
But never fear, this is for a charitable cause. Proceeds from this event will support the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children’s Butterfly Fund, which provides emergency financial assistance for families whose children are being treated. The organization provides $350,000 per year for families in Georgia and the Southeast.
In addition to his syndicated radio show which broadcasts from AM750 and 95.5 FM News/Talk WSB in Atlanta and his HLN television show, Clark is active in charitable causes including Habitat for Humanity and his annual Christmas toy drive.
The event will honor Dr. Walter J. Curran Jr., executive director of the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University, with the foundation’s Visionary Award in appreciation for his work at Emory and Winship, including his leadership in bringing a proton beam therapy center to the city of Atlanta.
The event will feature fare from Affairs to Remember Caterers and entertainment from Buck Buckley Band with a guest performance by Cindy Wilson of the B-52’s. For information and tickets see www.braintumorkids.org or call 404-252-4107.
