Spotlight on CCYA Choir
Choir at Fashion Show2CCYA has found a sound! And it starts with the CCYA Choir. The CCYA Choir began in 2011 as an on-campus club for those residents who enjoyed singing, and we have watched it change and grow since then! Under the guidance of Resident Advisor/Director Tony Wells our Choir has built a nice reputation.
They have been invited to sing at events such as Wildfire Wood Grill Restaurant, The Junior League of Cobb-Marietta’s Annual Dinner, CASA's Christmas Luncheon and the Circle for Children's Roaring 20's Ball. Most recently, the Choir performed at the Steve Hightower Thriving Children Gala & Fashion Show in downtown Atlanta! They are pictured here in their Muppet-themed outfits!
Some of the songs performed this year were "He Still Loves Me" from the Fighting Temptations and "Life's a Happy Song" from the Muppet Movie.  The Choir has helped to give the youth a sense of confidence through achievement and has helped the kids to identify and take pride in their individual interests. Since its beginning, the Choir has seen lots of changes as our kids come and go, but the spirit remains the same as new faces (and voices!) are introduced. We could not be more proud of them!
The CCYA Choir is always looking for new opportunities to perform! If you have an event or group meeting that could use some musical entertainment, please contact Kimie at for more information!

A Night to Remember!Steve and Leslie
Our 4th annual Thriving Children Gala was a huge success! The evening was filled with entertainment from our charming emcee Leslie Jordan as well as musical performances by Laughing Pizza and the Sentimental Journey Orchestra. This event brings attention to 3 special organizations doing important work in our community: CCYA, Fragile Kids Foundation, and Childkind. None of it would be possible without the dedication and compassion of Steve Hightower. He created the event 4 years ago and continues to be the driving force that makes it all come together.
We would like to thank all of our sponsors for the event:
Pride Medical, Jim Ellis, Herzing University, L’Oreal, St. Mark’s Church, Prime Power, Roger Naik, Bosley, 14 West Realtors, Eric Ripper, Northside Psychological Services, Julia Roberts, Bristol Myers, Deborah Worley Fincher, Albion Scaccia, Repechage, Kari Wells, Duncan Wells, Noula Zaharis, Mark Crispin, DBA BBQ, Nap Nap, Pritchard & Jerden, WS Pharr, Insperity, Paycom, Matthew LaVallee, Compliance Partners, Greg Hect, Michelle Frank, Sue Smallwood, Sam Ofer, Ray’s on the River, A&K Affairs, Bridgetown Catering, Doc Cheys, Carole Parks, Honeybaked Ham, Kenny’s Pies, San Francisco Coffee, Garrison’s, Bahama Breeze, DK BBQ, and Gallery Gourmet.

We would also like to thank the wonderful women of The Circle for Children. Their Havana Nights themed Casino Night in March raised $70,000 for CCYA which was recently presented to our CEO Kim Borna at The Circle’s annual lunch. This charitable group of women has contributed to worthy children’s organizations for more than 70 years. They have become very special friends of The Center over the past few years as they volunteer their time to work with our kids, serve meals, and raise money through their annual fundraiser. We are grateful for the love and support they show to our boys and girls!
