The EmPower Party was a great success!!


On October 3rd, over 450 people joined Jane Fonda to honor Dr. Sanjay Gupta for his remarkable work as a neurosurgeon, a journalist, and an activist promoting healthy lifestyles.  He is inspiring.

Thanks to our hardworking and creative co-chairs – Ashley Miller and Alexandra Walter – and their committee, we raised over $500,000 in net revenue to support GCAPP’s life-changing work for adolescents in our community.

Together, we are helping ensure that our young people can have a safe and healthy adolescence and the opportunity for a productive future.


The success of the EmPower Party supports our work on two fronts over the next year:

Teen births continue to decline significantly in Georgia because we are working with parents, youth organizations, clinics, governmental programs and community leaders to see that our kids have the right information about healthy relationships and choices. We are committed to reaching even more adolescents next year.

Because obesity is a crisis for nearly one million adolescents in Georgia, we are working in places like Atlanta’s Vine City community to make sure these youth -- and their families -- know how to make good choices around food and are supported in healthy eating and physical activity. 


We are grateful to our sponsors, patrons and guests, to those who donated auction items or in kind services for ensuring that the EmPower Party surpassed goal again this year.


It is a great pleasure to recognize here everyone who made this possible:
