The Beloved Benefit, a community impact event that took place at the Mercedes Benz Stadium, Atlanta, GA, galvanizes the city of Atlanta, and aims to inspire positive change through greater economic mobility.
The event focused on raising awareness, securing funds, and inspiring action to help shape Atlanta’s legacy with a vision of cultivating a community free of poverty, hunger, and homelessness, where racism and prejudice is replaced with love and brotherhood.
This year’s event also included a special tribute to the late Congressman John Lewis, a musical performance by Seasons Collective, and a theatrical performance called “Little A.”
The $6.3 Million raised will be distributed directly to this year’s eight Nonprofit Beneficiaries and eleven Community Beacons, which prioritize economic and community development at the core of their missions.
This year’s eight Beneficiaries include:
This year’s lead sponsors included The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, Chick-fil-A, Inc., Mercedes-Benz Stadium, The Home Depot Foundation, The WestRock Foundation, Georgia Power, Peach Bowl, Inc., Truist, The Coca-Cola Company, Sunkist Growers and UPS.
