Freedom Fête 2010: Celebrating Courage
Isha Sesay, CNN International anchor
Mark your calendars for Freedom Fête, IRC Atlanta's annual gala event, on September 11. At this year's event, guests will be able to bid on vacation stays in Argentina and Jekyll Island, a plane ride in an open-air cockpit, a private African dinner for 8, and more. Make your reservation now and support IRC Atlanta's work to help refugees rebuild their lives in freedom and dignity here in metro Atlanta.
This year’s theme will be “Celebrating Courage,” a fitting tribute as we mark the milestone of resettling our 20,000th refugee since IRC Atlanta opened its doors in 1979. Ms. Isha Sesay, CNN International anchor and host of Inside Africa, will serve as our Mistress of Ceremonies.
Guests will enjoy international cuisine, musical entertainment, a silent auction and spectacular views from Nelson Mullins’ penthouse terrace. The evening will culminate in a spoken program, as well as an out of the ordinary live auction presided over by comedian and actor Rob Cleveland.
