WELCOMING SPECIAL GUESTS
COLBY DEE AND JERAD LELAND!!
Third Annual Car City - September 16-17, 2016
Central Georgia Technical College 5 PM to 7 AM
The Ignitions are on and the Engines are Revved ……….Family Promise of Greater Houston County will begin its Third Annual CAR CITY event Friday evening, September 16, 2016 at Central Georgia Technical College. Volunteers and community leaders will spend a night in their cars to experience homelessness and raise awareness for homeless children and their families in Houston County. Although a serious need in our community, the event will feature a night of fun and entertainment along with a bit of education as we raise funds to support the program.
We are excited to have Nashville entertainer Colby Dee and TV/movie actor Jerad Leland join us this year! Our MC for the evening will be Amanda Miliner, 2015 Georgia Teacher of the Year. Amanda has been a faithful volunteer for the past two years and we are pleased she is taking on this new role. As 2007 Miss Georgia for the Miss America pageant, 2008 Miss Georgia USA, and many others, Amanda's first love is teaching and she carries that over in her support of homeless children and their families. She will be introducing other performers on tap for the evening including: Jadis Marcum, G-Swag - Destined 4 Greatness of Union Grove Baptist Church, Melanie Woods, Miss Northside High School, Heart of Georgia Barbershop Chorus, and Faith, Hope & Love Trio. Our Soup Line will again be provided by Scout Troop 566, and we look forward to another amazing table of homemade cookies by local Girl Scouts 60185. Other activities include an outdoor movie, popcorn, marshmallow roasting, and a Flashlight Scavenger Hunt. Breakfast for overnighters is served at 6 AM.
