The scoop on what’s new around Atlanta.
Teach Your Children Well
Teaching kids about sharing, potty training or even behaving well at school can sometimes be a challenge. Author Missy Wallen-Nichols turned these lessons into an inspirational children’s book, “The Be Good Fairy.” This unique book offers kids fun, lesson-based stories and gives parents a tool to teach them about different behavioral issues.
A Healthy Sense of Style
Trends come and go, but health is always stylish. Manna Fund, a local non-profit that works to cover the costs of eating disorder treatments, aims to educate the public about healthy body image for youth. Join their “Be The Model” fashion show event on April 27, which puts everyday health role models on the runway. To walk the runway themselves, teens can submit a short video explaining how they can be a model of health in the community.

You Golf, Girl!
Mark your calendar for the Judson Collegiate & Legends Pro-Am Challenge, beginning June 26. This golf tournament includes three events for Atlanta’s golf enthusiasts: a one-day tournament of LPGA Legends golfers, a three-day world-ranking competition for female collegiate golfers, and a pro-am scramble that pairs professional golfers with amateurs for a fun day on the course. New this year is a women’s leadership conference to guide young women in their early careers. The event raises funds for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and the JCI Foundation to support young women through positive mentorship, education and sports.
