Folks in the Atlanta Underground Club Scene know The Shelter as a cool bar that hosts awesome theme nights, live shows, and killer parties. But sometimes, people in need of something more serious than a good time call The Shelter looking for help. They are trying to reach the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children, and the good people at The Shelter helpfully redirect them to the appropriate place.
This Friday, July 29, The Shelter would like to give back to the the Atlanta Day Shelter by hosting a benefit. All proceeds from the door charges and a prize raffle will go to the non-profit organization, as will a portion of the bar profits.
The Atlanta Day Shelter helps women and children with a variety of programs including computer training, educational programs, health care, and housing assistance. With back to school time right around the corner, the Atlanta Day Shelter is currently collecting school supplies. Take a look at the school supplies list, and please consider donating any of these items at the benefit on Friday. There will be a bin for you to make your donations, and you’ll feel good knowing you have helped a child in need.
This night is for a worthy cause, but it will also be a lot of fun! Dark Industry Tuesdays DJ Ghost will be spinning dance music all night with special guests. Drinks are always fantastic at the bar, and remember that a portion of beverage sales will also go to the Atlanta Day Shelter, so drink up! There will also be a raffle with awesome prizes including:
- Jezebel Blue custom jewelry
- Erick Jara Dreamskin Artwork
- RUSH Specialty Clothing
- Mickey Lynn Designs custom jewelry
- Village Smoke gift certificates
- Sacred Heart Tattoo gift certificates
- Sugar Doll Cupcakes gift certificates
- Re Vamp by Darbella makeovers and spa services
- Neon Armour Artwork
- and more!
Raffle ticket prices will be announced at the benefit and will be on sale for the first half of the night. Bring your extra cash for a chance to win any of these amazing prizes; even if you don’t win a prize, you still win because you’ve donated to a good cause.
Cover for this event is only $5, and again, that will go straight to the Atlanta Day Shelter. Doors open for this event at 9pm, and the benefit will go until close at 3am. The Shelter is located at 2101 Tula St. NW, 30309, and there is plenty of free parking.
