New Acquisitions Supports For a Day Foundation

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2016) - On Thursday, April 28, 2016, the For a Day Foundation's Atlanta Chapter held their 4th Annual Fundraiser at The Greystone at Piedmont Park. New Acquisitions' directors and team members were in attendance to support the foundation's cause.

The For a Day Foundation's goal is to give children suffering with cancer a day to forget their conditions and to remember what it's like to be a kid again. By hosting events such as "Queen for a Day" or "Hero for a Day," the foundation's volunteers assist the children in playing dress up and even invite local heroes, such as policemen, fire fighters, and local athletic figures to the events to raise the children's spirits and create an experience for them that they will never forget, according to the foundation's website.

By hosting these events, the foundation hopes to boost the children's self-esteem and self-image, not only while they overcome their conditions, but also while they are in remission as well. Even the teenagers are welcome, as Monica Louise, a cancer survivor and For a Day veteran, mentioned as she recounted her first time attending one of the foundations' events in front of a crowd of fundraiser attendees.

Thursday's fundraising event began with a silent auction and hors d'oeuvres being served to the guests. Among the prizes were signed sports memorabilia from local Atlanta teams such as The Falcons and The Hawks. Guitars with various signatures from local musicians like the Zac Brown Band were also on display, as well as packages from local vendors, including restaurant deals and sight-seeing adventures in the Atlanta area.

The night concluded with a live-auction for more exclusive packages, such as hotel deals and complementary nights on the town provided by local vendors as well. Afterwards, the attendees were welcome to take home their winnings, knowing their money had gone a good cause.

New Acquisitions' team, as a whole, donated over $2,500.00 at the event. Director, Zack Schuch personally took home a basketball signed by the broadcasters of Inside the NBA on TNT, Charles Barkley, Shaquille O'Neal, Ernie Johnson, and Kenny Smith. Schuch also took home a framed poster signed by the band members of The Fray. Another team member took home a necklace from Jewels with a Purpose, an organization dedicated to donating high end jewelry to silent auctions that benefit charities. Other members of the New Acquisitions team took home restaurant vouchers and tickets to local events.

The team at New Acquisitions have set a goal for 2016 to keep their involvement in the Atlanta community high by attending similar fundraisers and events in the upcoming months.
