The Georgia Committee for Adolescent Power and Potential (GCAPP) will host its annual Empower Party Nov. 14 at the Fox Theatre’s Egyptian Ballroom in Midtown. Founded by actress Jane Fonda, GCAPP is an Atlanta-based nonprofit that works with school districts across the state to help students in four areas: comprehensive sex education, youth empowerment, parent engagement and physical activity and nutrition. This year’s event theme is “Healthier Together” and celebrates GCAPP’s impact on more than 60,000 Georgia youth, empowering them to make healthier choices and reach their full potential. The program will include an informal conversation with Fonda and Spanx founder Sara Blakely about the Emmy-nominated HBO program “Jane Fonda in Five Acts.” Guests will watch excerpts of the documentary. Afterwards, Grammy Award-winning artist Sheryl Crow will give a private concert at the event, which will also include a VIP reception, silent and live auctions, cocktails, a gourmet seated dinner and an after-party with celebrity DJs. Ginny Brewer, who is co-chairing the event with Karen Spencer, recently hosted a luncheon at her home in Ansley Park as a kickoff for the 2019 Empower Party committee.
