A couple of weeks ago I assisted with the event coordination of the Atlanta Food Rave. The event itself was remarkable, 5 of Atlanta’s top chef’s competed to prepare food (live) for guests and to benefit the Atlanta Food Bank. But, the scene-stealing portion of the event was..Butt Sketches! What are “Butt Sketches” you ask? They are a pieces of art, charcoal sketches in live time of your entire back side. See the picture above. These artists are based in Austin, TX and take about 2 1/2 minutes per butt. Additionally, the artists incorporated sass, personality and accessories into the sketchs. Truly an entertaining and memorable part of any event, not to mention that you get to take the artwork home! Mine is framed and post on the wall of my living room. I absolutley love it!
On Saturday May 22,2010 Beyond Events Atlanta teamed up with local event planning company Lilly White Events to produce the first annual Slappey & Sadd Family Fun Day. The event was created as fundraiser for the Sandy Springs Police Department’s Benevolent Fund. The Benevolent Fund is to benefit the surviving family members of fallen police officers. The money in the fund is used for a variety of purposes including; burial/funeral costs for the officer, to assist the family with unexpected bills or costs associated with the loss and the future needs of the officer’s children. The event was attended by over 500 Atlanta residents and over $3,000 was raised! Some of the attractions provided were a Rock climbing wall, a moon bounce, face painting and live musical performances. Delicious barbeque was provided by Slopes BBQ and juicy hotdogs were flame grilled by the experts from Pigs-n-plugs on their massive commercial grill. It was a joyous event for a great cause. The Slappey and Sadd Law Firm intends to repeat the event for years to come, return to the Beyond Events Atlanta Blog for information of the future of this FREE event.
