Grateful Days was honored to participate in ConnectAbility’s 5th annual Thanksgiving Banquet & Silent Auction held Friday, Nov. 13, 2016.
Local bohemian clothing donated by several Dahlonega homemade gift merchants
So many local Dahlonega businesses helped to make this event a success. Held at the Lumpkin County Parks and Recreation Center, the event was a potluck where every attendee contributed to a delicious dinner of traditional and non-traditional Thanksgiving goodies such as turkey and dressing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and delicious desserts.
The bohemian gifts we donated to ConnectAbility
For this year’s annual ConnectAbility Thanksgiving Banquet and Silent Auction, Grateful Days donated a couple of its fabulous bohemian gifts to a great cause: a Savannah Bee Company gift basket with honey, lotions, body wash, soap and a coffee mug (value $75); and a Mona B up-cycled canvas tote bag made from genuine leather and recycled military canvas (value $65).
“I am truly thankful that my family and I were able to attend the Thanksgiving dinner and enjoy the company of so many happy faces. ConnectAbility is a wonderful organization committed to providing the highest quality community support to families affected by disability,” said Grateful Days owner Susan Garrick.
