The 18th Annual Hoochie

Monday, April 16, 2012

"For almost two decades, The Hoochie has been one of Atlanta’s most anticipated events and has raised more than $3 million for conservation in Georgia. This casual gala features live music, a birds of prey flight show, sustainable cuisine and an exclusive silent auction."

I have had the opportunity to work with The Nature Conservancy in Georgia on their annual  Earth Day fundraiser (The Hoochie) for the past two years, and it's definitely my favorite project. We put together their marketing collateral for the event, and in exchange for our work we get to attend the event!

Last year, the event happened to fall on the same day a monsoon hit Atlanta. The weather was insane, but we stuck it out (under the tented area) and had a great time. This time Mother Nature was on our team - the weather was perfect!

Here are a few pictures from Friday night's event.

Miniature ponies!

Members from Georgia Southern University's Wildlife Education Program brought some of their friends:  a bald eagle, an owl, an indigo snake...and this guy.

Some of the gorgeous decor at the event.

We lucked out - Adam didn't have a baseball game, so he was able to attend!

The Hoochie is such a fun event, and all proceeds go to environmental conservation here in the state of Georgia. Be sure to check it out next year!
