The Whitlock Foundation Cocktail Reception

The Whitlock Foundation would like to thank the over two hundred people that attended the Cocktail Reception at the W Hotel in Buckhead on July 26th, 2013. This event was a great success and helped raise thousands of dollars for the Nicholas S. Whitlock Memorial Scholarship. It was quite a way to kick off our fundraising efforts!

We would like to thank the Cumberland Collective, who provided the night’s entertainment. They rocked out!

The event was made possible through the generous support of the Omni Hotel, Titos Vodka, Laphroaig Whisky, Maker’s Mark, Maker’s 46, Jim Beam Black, and Empire Distributors.

We would also like to thank all the businesses and individuals who contributed to our very successful silent auction, including the W Hotel-Downtown, the Glenn Hotel, the Grand Hyatt Atlanta-Buckhead, Redbox, Miss Sophie’s Marketplace, Charlie Daniels, the Farley Family, Jenny King, Brittany Billings, Charity by Design, Stevens Layne and Eddie’s Attic, Carter and Leigh Rosenbloom, John and Cristin Kirbo, the Cabot Creamery, the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum, the Atlantis Casino Resort and Spa-Reno, the Georgia Aquarium, Bill Kaelin Marketing, Malibu Grand Prix- Norcross, AeroAtlanta, the Children’s Museum of Atlanta, Imagine It!, Origami Owl, Macon York Letterpress & Design, and the Atlanta Zoo.

The hard work of people like Trisha Bell, Karla Cwetna, Matthew Brooker, Catherine LaChance, and particularly Elizabeth Ergle, who headed up the silent auction, helped to make this event possible. Our sincerest appreciation is extended to them.

Special thanks must go out to Ryan Becker who oversaw this event from its conception to reality, putting in countless hours to make this event the great success that it was.


Our next event will be on August 30th at the Armory Ballroom in Macon, GA, and we hope to see you all there.
