The inaugural Big Red Ball benefiting the Atlanta-based non-profit 50 Cents. Period. will take place at the Old Courthouse on the Square in Decatur. Lavish bites from Alison Lueker of Atlanta's Sun in My Belly will highlight a convivial evening of dinner, drinks and dancing with Stiletto Dance Company and music from Atlanta Big Band at one of Decatur's most lauded venues. Over 200 guests will convene to enjoy Lueker's distinct dishes as well as the benefit's signature cocktail, the Big Red Bev. Guests are encouraged to "paint the night red" as they dance and mingle at one of 2013's most important charitable events.
50 Cents. Period. was founded in 2010 by Atlantan Lorrie King to aid girls in developing countries who miss a week of school each month when they have their periods. Just 50 cents buys a month of sanitary supplies for a needy girl, allowing her to stay in school. In 2013, 50 Cents. Period. represents a worldwide network of individuals dedicated to creating more options for girls across the globe by providing supplies, facilities and education related to their periods so they are able to complete their educations, and live less marginalized, healthy lives - an impact that lasts for their lifetime as well as for future generations of women. $115
