PHOTOS: FTK’s Backpack in the Park

It was a warm, beautiful day for the the ninth annual For the Kid’s Backpack in the Park back-to-school benefit on July 27 at the gorgeous Cator Woolford Gardens. The event included a complimentary brunch buffet by Zest Atlanta with drinks by Diageo and Smirnoff.

Hundreds of backpack were filled with school supplies to be given to young people. Beneficiaries this year include Atlanta City Public Schools, AID Atlanta, Childkind, CHRIS Kids, Lutheran Services and Jerusalem House.

For the Kid is a gay-founded nonprofit that also hosts the annual Toy Party each year in December.
