Janie Fickling Skinner, chair of Shepherd Center’s Legendary Party, recently hosted a preview event to promote the gala. Set for Nov. 2 at Flourish in Buckhead, this year’s event is themed “Sakura, Blossoms of Renewal.” The theme was picked because Skinner’s grandfather, William A. Fickling Sr., donated hundreds of thousands of Japanese cherry trees to Macon for the initiation of the city’s Cherry Blossom Festival. The Legendary Party will include a cocktail reception, a formal gourmet dinner and dancing to the sounds of the ATL Groove Factory. For gala or sponsorship information or to purchase tickets, contact Erin Schuster at erin.schuster@shepherd.org or 404-350-7304.
