ATLANTA – June 8, 2018 – ProviDyn®, a provider of IT support, strategy and services for small and medium-sized businesses and nonprofits, combined three of its favorite passions – food, music and charity - by attending the fourth annual "Food That Rocks, a Celebration of Sandy Springs." This annual event included all you can eat selections from more than 20 top Sandy Springs restaurants, bottomless beer, wine and cocktails as well as live music by The Biffs which only got more “80’s” as alcohol intake increased.
According to Atlanta Jewish Times, “Food That Rocks is a great way to meet new neighbors, sample the great food in our area, and find out about charities doing amazing work — all in our back yard."
“We couldn’t agree more,” commented ProviDyn CEO Hamish Davidson, “This is a high energy team event and it’s always nice to be supporting nonprofits in the process.”
The following charities were beneficiaries of proceeds from the evening’s festivities:
