Its biggest event yet, the Venza Group celebrated five years in business by acknowledging the needs of Georgia’s foster and adoptive families.

This year’s charity fundraiser was sponsored to provide financial assistance to Supporting Adoption and Foster Families Together (SAFFT). SAFFT is a Georgia-based not-for-profit that provides supportive foundations to improve the lives of children in care.

The Venza Group chose to return this year’s event to the Sage Woodfire Tavern’s Garden Room, the location of their first two charity fundraisers. In addition to a record-breaking number of attendees, the 5th annual event yielded a long list of sponsors. This year’s roll-call of support for SAFFT included Chase Bank, Genesee General, Flip.to, Carroll & Company, POND, Hospitality Upgrade Magazine, INFOR, and the law firm of Arnall, Golden, Gregory (AGG). Banners and promotional printing was provided by Atlanta’s very own, Trinity Press.

Through participation in the silent auction and raffle ticket sales, the revelry generated $16,040.41 for the worthy local cause. With a one-for-one match offered through the United Way, the Venza Group’s 5th Annual Charity Event raised a total of $32,080.82 for SAFFT.
 
The SAFFT Family Visitation & Community Center also offers an individualized, needs based parenting curriculum to enhance a caretaker’s ability to provide a nurturing and structured home environment. This parenting curriculum satisfies Juvenile Court and Department of Family & Children Services court ordered parenting requirements.

The Center now serves hundreds of people a year. SAFFT continues to launch new and unique programs with the goal to serve our families in the most need and help support those loving caregivers who provide a temporary or permanent home for children in broken families. The board of directors still includes some of the original founding board members and the original co-founders of the organization.
