ATLANTA - On February 9, 2017, the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council (SMC) presented HomeAid Atlanta with a gift of $11,000, the proceeds from the SMC’s 2016 Silent Auction. The annual event was held in December at the Hyatt Atlanta Perimeter at Villa Christina, in conjunction with the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association’s holiday party.
Over the past twenty years, the SMC’s Silent Auction has raised approximately $100,000 in support of charities helping children and adults in need. HomeAid Atlanta has been the sole charity recipient in recent years. Ansley Brooks, SMC Special Events Committee member stated, “I’m proud of the Atlanta SMC’s involvement with HomeAid Atlanta. HomeAid is a wonderful cause and we’re excited to see all the lives changed this year through our donation. I can’t wait for the 2017 Silent Auction in support of HomeAid!”
