ATLANTA - s4story -- Sheltering Arms will celebrate 135 years of impact to metro Atlanta's children and families during its annual signature event on September 28 from 6:30 – 10:00 pm at Guardian Works, 775 Echo Street NW, Atlanta, GA 30318. The Embrace Early and Create the Future street party will feature the heart-felt stories of alumni, former parents and long-serving teachers, and include live performances, a variety of delicious street fare food, dancing, and online bidding during the live and silent auctions – all benefitting Sheltering Arms' high-quality early child care program and two-generation approach to preparing children and families for success.

"For 135 years, Sheltering Arms has been a place of safety, stability and success for tens of thousands of children and their families," said Blythe Keeler Robinson, president and CEO of Sheltering Arms.

"The reality is that ninety percent (90%) of our children require financial assistance to attend our program," added Keeler Robinson. "Our hope is that dollars raised from this event will allow us to continue providing needs-based tuition scholarships so more families have access to a high-quality early education program for their little ones. What a great way to head into the next 135 years, preparing future generations for success in school and life!"

Tickets for the event are available for $200. Table host and sponsorship opportunities are still available in packages ranging from $3,500 to $50,000, offering a variety of benefits, including engagement opportunities and prominent name recognition.
