Member Collaboration: Summer Celebration


Athensmade Members Collaborate on Summer Celebration:
A dinner at Lindsey's Culinary Market benefiting Strong Girls.

On Thursday evening, July 26th the strong women of Lindsey's Culinary Market will prepare a tomoto-focused Summer Celebration dinner to benefit the young women of Strong Girls.

How an Athensmade collaboration is born:

Lindsey Payne, owner of Lindsey's Culinary Market, recently had an idea: to begin offering dinner events with farm-fresh seasonal focus.

However, Lindsey didn't want these dinners to be just any dinners. She wanted a philanthropic focus. One day when Athensmade's Executive Director Mary Charles Howard stopped by Lindsey's Culinary to grab lunch, Lindsey told Mary Charles of her idea to support a local philanthropy and asked for recommendations for local nonprofits that empower teenage girls. Mary Charles immediately thought of Strong Girls and connected Lindsey with the founders of Strong Girls, Kim and Rachel.

Two weeks later, a wonderful collaboration was announced: a Summer Celebration pop-up dinner at Lindsey's Culinary Market. A portion of this dinner's proceeds will be given to Strong Girls. Strong Girls is a non-profit, Athens-based, affiliate which promotes self-confidence and happiness in young girls.

This dinner is just the beginning of the relationship between Strong Girls and Lindsey's Culinary Market. Lindsey plans to teach cooking classes to Strong Girls and more.

Support strong girls and strong women in our community by purchasing a $50 ticket to this Summer Celebration pop-up dinner on Thursday, July 26 at 6pm. BYOB.
