Featuring John Driskell Hopkins of the Zac Brown Band, a silent auction, VIP cocktail hour, multiple opening acts including a local group called The Manly Hero, and many vendors, the concert brought out a great crowd to enjoy southern rock sounds at The Green at Crabapple Market.
After the fundraising event, the Alpharetta Public Safety and the Milton First Responders Foundations each received $26,869 to further their missions of supporting those who protect the Alpharetta and Milton communities.
One of our missions as a Foundation is to bring our community and first responders closer together, said Brian Dolan, chair of the Milton First Responders Foundation. The concert is part of our continuing effort to accomplish that mission. The turnout, support, and admiration displayed by our community toward our first responders was outstanding.
Janet Rodgers, chairman of the Alpharetta Public Safety Foundation, said, We cannot thank John Driskell Hopkins, the wonderful vendors, the sponsors, the planning committee, and the volunteers enough for making this event happen. The money raised will give us the ability to accomplish our mission of supporting our public safety employees in their times of need, so they can focus on maintaining world-class public safety in our community.
The Alpharetta Public Safety and the Milton First Responders Foundations are nonprofit organizations dedicated to providing financial support to first responders in times of need as well as providing funds for additional equipment and training for police and firefighters.
