Thank You Atlanta
On Saturday October 7th, with the weather in flux, Diner en Blanc dazzled Downtown Atlanta. Taking place at the brand new Mercedes Benz Stadium, 2,600 eager members graced the grounds in their best and most glamorous of whites. Diner en Blanc Atlanta’s 4th Edition was the first private event to be featured at the stadium home to the Atlanta Falcons. Mother Nature was on our side as our guests dined and danced only the way Atlanta does. Class and elegance was in the air, like an enchanted wonderland. Truly a vision!
Every year, the secret location is a mystery. Could it be in Centennial Park or is that too obvious? The secret was kept until the very last moment and it did not disappoint as our guests settled onto the grounds in front of the glorious Falcon that represents the Atlanta Football team.
With the ceremonial waving of the napkins, Le Dîner en Blanc 2017 commenced with French classical music by members of the Tara Winds Wind Symphony and the Lekan Jazz Trio. Just before DJ Grace L’Amour took to the turntables, guests were wowed by cool vocals and smooth guitar sounds by the one and only Urban Guitar Legend ~ Elliot Holden. The party kicked off to another level with International recording pop artist… “WurlD” and cirque style performances by Liquid Sky. A line-up not soon forgotten!
The night would not have been possible without some of these special mentions. A tremendous thank you to our Volunteer & Communication Manager, Kim Schulster, our Head Leaders, Aleatha Lanier and Sheletha Champion-Booker for putting in countless hours so that every guest experienced the magic of this event. A huge Merci goes out to our 15 Group Leaders and 60 dedicated Table Leaders who really helped contribute to the flawless execution of this year’s event.
A huge thank you to our Hosts Helen Mitchell, Lisa Fisher and Tina DeRenzis for burning the midnight oil to produce some of the best entertainment Diner en Blanc Atlanta has seen. Thank you also goes out to our press team, headed by Lisa Fisher, for having all of Atlanta talking and her exceptional social media.
A special thank you to Evian and Badoit waters for quenching our thirsts and keeping us hydrated in summer-like temperatures. And last but certainly not least, a HUGE thank you to Latonda Henderson and her staff of Mercedes Benz Stadium and Levy Restaurants for their time and patience in allowing us to take over such a special and memorable space in Atlanta. It truly was exceptional.
