Central Georgia Technical College 6pm to 7am
We were again excited to feature a lineup of Home Town Folks for our Fifth Annual CAR CITY "Family FUN Sleep OUt" held at Central Georgia Technical College, Friday, April 26. Our line-up of HOMETOWN HEADLINERS included returning actor Jared Leland (Walking Dead and Marvel movies) who brought a gift basket of items given to the winner of a "Hulk Exercise" Competition. Amanda Milner (2006 Miss Georgia and 2015 Georgia Teacher of the Year) and Lexi Henry )2019 Ms. USA Hospitality) again helped us MC the event with an appearance by WMAZ Sport's Editor, Marvin James.
In addition to these HOMETOWN HEADLINERS we were blessed by performances by several young pageant queens: Mary Grace Moore, Miss Houston County HS; Darlyn Davis, Miss Hummingbird; Elizabeth Sanders, Miss Middle West GA Teen; Destiny Kluck, Miss Historic Buford Teen; and Little Miss Camron Griffith, Fifth Grader at Matt Arthur ES. There was lots of great music by: Sweet Southern Sound, Destined for Greatness, New Hope Gospel Choir, Justin Wright, Thomson Middle School 8th Grade Chorus, Heart of Georgia Barbershop Quartet, and the Music Side of Town Blues Band.
The Family FUN included a bouncy house & slide, Spike Ball by Trinity UMC youth, corn hole, hoola hoops, flashlight scavenger hunt, and a movie under the stars accompanied by S'mores provided by KAZ volunteers. Folks enjoyed "home-less style food" by the Scouts and the Woodmen Life groups….soup, bread, and PB&J sandwiches. Varied desserts were available. The hardy folks who slept in cars and vans got a small taste of one kind of homelessness and they were treated to donuts and sausage rolls before heading home.
This evening under the stars entertained, educated and helped attendees appreciate the needs of the more than 600 homeless children in Houston County. We appreciate all the Parking Lot donors whose contributions will support the mission and work of serving homeless children and their families in the days to come.
Our Mission: Ending homelessness in Houston County.......One family at a time.
