The Arthritis Foundation’s Crystal Ball supports the Foundation’s mission by raising awareness and funds for arthritis research and programs like Camp AcheAway, an annual summer camp created especially for children living with arthritis. Since its inception in 1982, the Crystal Ball has raised nearly $7 million. It is the most successful fundraising event of the Arthritis Foundation’s Georgia Chapter. On October 24th, 2009, the 28th Annual Crystal Ball was held at The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead and was themed “A Celebration of Gratitude.” The night was an elegant affair, which included one of Atlanta’s most exclusive silent auctions. Guests were served exquisite fare created by the legendary caterers at The Ritz and danced to sweet music by Del Baroni & ON THE AIR Orchestra. Flowers and the rich fall decor were provided by Tony Brewer & Co. Tony Brewer was not only a vendor at the event, he was also the Crystal Ball Honoree, recognized for more than ten years of service and dedication to the Foundation. Coca-Cola Enterprises was recognized as the Corporate Champion for its partnership in helping the Arthritis Foundation achieve its mission. Celebrating for a worthy cause never looked, tasted or felt so good! Images by Michael Ray White Photography!
