It was 20 years ago this month when a group of concerned citizens came together to form a coalition dedicated to preserving and improving the quality of life in the community of Peachtree Corners.
The result was The United Peachtree Corners Civic Association (UPCCA).
The efforts of UPCCA eventually led to the formation of the City of
To celebrate UPCCA's milestone, a community celebration will be held on Saturday, October 26 from 6:30 to 11:00PM at the Marriott Peachtree Corners.
Attendees will be treated to hors d'oeuvres, a seated dinner, cash bar, music, dancing, and a birthday cake. Organizers describe the Gala as an “opportunity to honor the heroes of our past and celebrate our vision for the future.”
UPCCA will be making a couple significant announcements at the event including an initiative to light the Peachtree Corners sign along Peachtree Parkway. Attendees will also learn more about a new scholarship program through UPCCA.
The evening will include an awards ceremony with categories ranging from Community Difference Maker, Rising Star, to the Paul Duke Lifetime Achievement Award. Event planners have secured several sponsorships.
If you are still interested in sponsoring or would like to provide a door prize valued at $25 or more please contact Judy Jay at Judy@judyjay.com or phone 770-241-5955.
