My homie Frank Ski and his lovely wife rolled out the red carpet for his 10th Annual Frank Ski Kids Foundation Wine-tasting Event. The annual fundraiser/celebration was amazing. The event had Atlanta’s mover and shakers in the house raising money and partying for the kids. Frank Ski Kids Foundation has a long history and record of doing good for the children in Atlanta.
This year’s fundraiser will go towards scholarship dollars for deserving student athletes, Frank Ski Kids traveling to Alaska to study the effects of Global Warming, and for Atlanta students excelling in academics.
Atlanta celebrities came out to lend their support with participation and checks. The event was co-sponsored by Kevin and Erica Liles. The event involved wonderful food catered by Chef Davis.
The desert selections ranged from my girls over at Cami Cakes and the delicious deserts from Yum Yum.
The live entertainment included an amazing performance by Gritz & Jelly Butter band, saxophonist Micheal Phillips, songstress Algebra, and the big homie Anthony David.
