Each year, Answer Atlanta selects a local charity and makes a monetary donation of between $15,000 and $20,000 to the nonprofit. The money is raised by the organization’s young business professionals who work to find creative solutions to help those less fortunate in the community. This year, the organization hosted a fall party at American Spirit Works Distillery to raise funds for Next Generation Men (NGM), the 2016 selected nonprofit that supports under served teens through school programs and special events. The party attracted more than 100 attendees, including NGM founders Ian Cohen, Travis Salters and Ben Sperling. Food was provided by the Yumbii Food Truck, and The Hill Roberts Band played funk and blues tunes to entertain party-goers. Approximately $15,000 was raised through ticket sales and donations.[nggallery id=56]
