A Night of Friends, Fun and Delicious Cuisine

Founded in 1996, City of Refuge has always sought to bring light, hope and transformation to individuals and communities in the heart of Atlanta and beyond. The Gathering will indulge over 500 attendees with a gourmet dinner and inspiring real life stories of transformation. City of Refuge is truly on a Path to Transformation and has great plans to expand our impact and reach into the community.

Joining Chef John will be James McLeod, resident chef of City of Refuge 180° Kitchen, as well as students from the City of Refuge 180° Kitchen Culinary Arts School.

Sponsors' Benefits

For the past 11 years, thousands of individuals in need have made their way through the gates of City of Refuge. Once here, they find access to resources that offer opportunity for life transformation. Since the beginning, we have been blessed with supporters and partners who have allowed us to continually increase our services in the areas of housing, healthcare, youth development and job training. Simultaneously, we have been fortunate enough to increase the number of individuals we put on a path to restoration. Over 300 women and children coming out of homelessness find light and hope as residents on our campus each day.

Now we have the opportunity to complete the build out of the 210,000 square foot facility, which started over 11 years ago, and realize our vision of providing a one-stop-shop of supportive services in the middle of the most underserved community in the state of Georgia. While we will complete the build out of our current space by the end of this year, our broader impact on the community is just beginning.

We would like to invite you to join us as a 2016 Corporate Sponsor by making a significant investment in our mission of bringing light, hope and transformation to those in need on our campus, community and beyond.
