As We Grow
It has been an exciting period of growth for our Playhouse. this marks our fifth year of service to the Atlanta community. We serve 400+ families and are honored to have had more than 350 volunteers work with our kids. Our programs offer education, social, and developmental support to help our kids, teens, and young adults thrive. We have expanded our offerings to make sure we are a welcoming place for young people from infancy to young adulthood, We are expecting more growth and new ways to serve our families as 2016 continues.
A special thanks to all of our sponsors, attendees, volunteers, and GiGi’s ambassadors for making the 2016 Gala the best one yet! Together we enjoyed a night of music provided by the Unforgettable Fire U2 tribute band, a live auction featuring fun getaways and keepsakes, and a successful Stand Up and Pledge, all in the name of GiGi’s Playhouse! Because of the commitment demonstrated at this Gala, not only will GiGi’s continue to thrive, but it will be able to do so more than ever before. Get excited for the 2017 Gala – it will surely be an event you won’t want to miss!
From June 13-17, the Big Top came to GiGi’s! Our playhouse turned into a circus world full of fun and learning. We made circus crafts like clown puppets, played circus games like fishing for rubber ducks, and enjoyed visits from special guests each day, namely story time with Kelly Young Silverman and Erin the Great, clown fun with Tommy the Clown from the Big Apple Circus, movement games with Apria and Cynthia from Tuo-Be, and music and dance with Maire Kelly. In addition to our special guests, we would also like to thank Gretchen and Cathy for their help with exercises and the trapeze – a favorite among the kids, Marnie and Angie for their dedication and energy each day, and all of our camp counselor volunteers for making the success of summer camp possible. Even more, camp concluded with a picnic and games under the sun at Piedmont Park, the perfect way to end a fun-filled week!
Thank you to our wonderful volunteers who have made this quarter’s programs a success! We especially want to thank our volunteers for the T21 Run on March 19th and our amazing friends Emory for setting up and managing the kids therapeutic play area during the run. Our parents knew the kids were in good hands. Read More
