ATLANTA -- Local bands will battle it out for a good cause on Friday, Feb. 28, when “Hope Grows: Battle of the Bands” tunes up in The Buckhead Theatre. Proceeds from the event, from 8-11 p.m., go to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA).
More than 100 teens from 10 Atlanta-area high schools are participating in the fundraiser, which features music, dinner provided by Chick-fil-A, and raffle prizes from the Atlanta Hawks, Woo Skincare & Cosmetics and more.
“I love it that high-school students from across the city have come together to support this one cause,” said Anne-Claire Pittman, co-president of the CHOA girlFriends group and an HIES senior. “Children's Healthcare of Atlanta has provided thousands of children in our city, state and country with exceptional and sometimes life-saving medical care. I think it’s important to give back to something that gives so much to children in need, regardless of their family’s economic situation.”
