The Chastain Park Conservancy is putting the finishing touches on its fifth annual Fall Fundraiser, which will feature a taste of area restaurants, music and live and silent auctions at the Chastain Amphitheater, beginning at 7 p.m. on Oct. 29.
The event, which provides funds for the Conservancy to help restore, enhance, maintain and preserve Chastain Park, offers an unusual backstage look at the Chastain Amphitheater and food tastings from Aja, C&S Seafood & Oyster Bar, Chops Steak & Lobster Bar, Chopstix, Food 101, Horseradish Grill and Sean’s American Bistro. There will also be a full bar.
Attendance is limited to 300 with a ticket price of $100 per person. Attire for the evening is “dressy casual.” Live music for the event will be provided by Scott Glazer and Men without Youth.
The live and silent auctions will feature a variety of hundreds of items.
Last year, the event raised just over $50,000 for the Chastain Park Conservancy.
The title sponsor for the event is Cinema Concepts. Other sponsors include Cox Enterprises, Inc., The Cousins Foundation, Dow Lohnes, Deloitte Touche, Goldman Sachs, McKenna Long and Aldrich and Watson Wyatt.
