Fix Georgia Pets is extremely grateful to all who sponsored the 2nd Annual Spring Wine Fling which was held at the beautiful Millner Estate.  Without sponsors, Fix Georgia Pets couldn’t hold events to raise money for our spay/neuter grant program.  The following are the wonderful sponsors who helped us raise close to $15,000 dollars, all of which will go towards fixing dogs and cats throughout Georgia.

First Horizon Bank has always been about people first. And, their vision for the future is to provide customers with technology designed to serve customers, not avoid them. Established 1873, Horizon Bank was founded as a community bank in Michigan City, Indiana, and has been putting down roots the right way ever since.

From company-wide fundraisers to grassroots activities, they see that time and money are something far greater than donations. They view them as an investment in the communities they serve.

First Horizon Bank makes customers their highest focus by giving exceptional service and advice to build long relationships.  They contribute to the betterment of each community and are committed to the preservation of independent banking.

In 2017, the Beers family, Mark and Susan, launched Blue Bench Garden on a family-owned property in Dahlonega, GA.

Blue Bench Garden produces fresh farm eggs, seasonal fruits, vegetables, and cut flowers from the 11,000 square foot market garden. The Beers subscribe to the conviction that good food can be grown responsibly in a small space, using sustainable farming methods, and without pesticides.

Susan is dedicated to sustainable farming and utilizes bio-intensive farming principles to harvest more than 2,000 pounds of produce annually which feeds their extended family and is sold via their onsite farm market.

Blue Bench Garden is a member of Georgia Grown ® and is a certified butterfly garden and habitat by the North American Butterfly Association.  Blue Bench Garden provided breads and sweets for the Spring Wine Fling and they were DELICIOUS!  Thank you so much Mark and Susan!  Photo: Susan Beers and her delectibles.

Kelly Plank-Dworkin and her husband David Dworkin, a 30-year retail veteran, opened the first Swoozie’s in Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia in March of 2001.

With neighborhood BBQs to attend, birthday functions to plan, teacher gifts to buy, wedding showers to organize and presents to wrap for each of them – not to mention juggling the rest of life’s every day activities – Kelly realized women needed a place that could provide the answers.

Kelly and David immersed themselves in the world of gifts and invitations. Half of the visually fabulous store features invitations and stationery and the other half is devoted to gifts, many of them personalized. The gift area of the store is theme based. It changes with the seasons, but also features a couple of staples including birthdays and weddings that customers have come to expect of Swoozie’s.

The fundamentals of Swoozie’s are steadfast and true – brilliant products, personalization that sets the standard, outstanding customer care, and giving back to their communities.

Thank you Swoozies for the super gift basket you donated for our event.  We are so grateful for your support.
