2021 Associates Luncheon

Friday, April 16, 2021
11:30 a.m. EST

Event Co-Chairs:
Anne Marino, 2021 Associates President
Cat Lindauer, 2021 Associates Vice President

We had hoped to gather together in-person after such a tumultuous year. However, until public health experts say it is safe, we will provide opportunities to support Skyland Trail without large gatherings. For the 2021 Associates Spring Luncheon, we are inviting Associates, as you feel comfortable, to host small watch parties with your close friends. Skyland Trail will stream a short video program, and you and your guests can enjoy lunches catered by Proof of the Pudding and delivered by Skyland Trail in advance (local Atlanta deliveries only). If you are not comfortable joining others yet, you are welcome to purchase an individual virtual ticket to view the program. We will all be together in spirit!

Spring Luncheon & Fashion Show

The Skyland Trail Associates Spring Luncheon is a unique annual fundraising event to support our mission. The event is organized by the Skyland Trail Associates, an impressive volunteer group of Atlanta women leaders. Guests enjoy a luncheon, spring fashion show and keynote presentation on mental health.

Generous Atlanta-based businesses sponsor the luncheon. Each year the Associates select an area of need or opportunity at Skyland Trail and direct proceeds from the event to help us advance or improve our world-class mental health treatment programs for clients and families.
