North Fulton Chamber President Brandon Beach had to call an audible when Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy cancelled his speaking engagement at the Aug. 28 Eggs & Enterprise Breakfast.
Cathy, who has been in the news quite a bit lately for comments made about marriage, told the chamber he had a scheduling conflict arise that made it impossible for him to be in Alpharetta that morning.
Beach announced that Falcons Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President Jim Smith will talk about the upcoming season, the Falcons league-leading marketing program, and the community activities underway.
Those activities include Dazzle and Dine, which honors women currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer as well as breast cancer survivors for their continued effort in fighting against breast cancer.
