Do not forget to save the date for Devereux Georgia’s annual fundraiser, The Hope Event: “The Art of Feelings,” on Thursday, September 21, 2017, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. The event, taking place at the Marietta Country Club, includes a reception, music, and a silent auction showcasing artwork created by Devereux children. The Hope Event showcases artwork in our Silent Auction that is created by youth served at Devereux Georgia. A few pieces will be donated by local professional artists. Throughout the year, 100+ youth paint their “hopes and dreams” in our therapeutic Art Enrichment Program. Professional art mentors work with the children; providing personalized artistic instruction and encouragement. After the Hope Event, each child is given a framed, color print of their original artwork, which they take with them when they discharge from treatment at Devereux Georgia.
