The Morningside-Lenox Park Association will hold two special events in October to increase awareness and raise funds to protect some of the area’s most beloved landmarks: the Morningside Cooks Tour and the annual Monumental Ball.
A portion of the funds raised from ticket sales for these events will benefit the restoration and repair of the historic pillars that mark the streets of the community and the Morningside Security Patrol.
Honorary hosts for both events are Kevin and Melissa Rathbun. A respected hospitality veteran, Kevin Rathbun is the owner of his namesake restaurant, Krog Bar and Rathbun Steak.
The Morningside Cooks Tour will be held Saturday, Oct. 16, from 1 to 5 p.m., throughout various neighborhood homes. Tour participants will be welcomed into five homes to enjoy the tasty culinary creations of various chefs from favorite restaurants in the area, including Rathbun’s, D.B.A. Barbecue, Rosebud and NAKATO.  Tickets for the Morningside Cooks Tour are $30.
The third annual Monumental Ball is Friday, Oct. 29, from 7-11 p.m. at Magnolia Hall in Piedmont Park. The ball will feature a delectable buffet prepared by Affairs to Remember.  Guests can also dance the night away while enjoying the sounds of the popular, Elvis-themed band Kingsized.  Black-tie dress is optional, and costumes are encouraged. Tickets for the ball are $45 until Oct. 1 and $55 from Oct. 2 until the event.
Tickets for both events are available for purchase via Paypal at www.mlpa.org.  Tickets are also available for purchase in person, by cash or check, at Fourteen West Realtors, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Intown, and D.B.A. Barbecue.

  1. Hello,

    I am writing on behalf of Klik Marketing who is helping sponsor an event in Atlanta, Georgia. It’s called Jenny’s Walk to Defeat ALS and it is on November 6th at Centennial Park. We have put together a press release that I think it would be great fit for this blog.

    Please let me know if you have any questions or require any additional information. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Sincerely,
    Jessica Herman

    Jenny’s Walk to Defeat ALS

    Join Jenny and Team DeMario for the walk to defeat ALS on November 6, 2010 at Centennial Park in Atlanta, GA. As ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease), hits close to home for Jenny, it affects many people each year in the United States and all over the world.

    Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a rapidly progressive and fatal neurological disease that attacks the nerve cells. Those with ALS lose the ability to control their voluntary muscles. The disease makes it difficult for people to swallow, speak, walk and breathe. Every 90 minutes, a person is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes, someone loses the battle to the disease.

    This walk was started by Jenny and her family in loving memory of her father. This will be the 3rd year that they will do the walk for ALS. This is an incredible opportunity to support those who are affected by ALS, raise money for the cause spread awareness, and ultimately find a cure for this crippling and fatal disease.
