Fans of luxury cars cruised up Highway 19 to the Bentley Atlanta dealership recently for an invitation-only unveiling of the 2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible.

One of the few dealerships in the country to offer a sneak peek at the new hand-built, open-air grand touring vehicle, Bentley Atlanta celebrated the exclusive viewing with a live auction that benefited Horizons Atlanta. Sales from the donated items, which included a Bentley 2020 GTC Weekend Experience and a microneedling package from Tailor Made Looks, raised almost $6,000, which will help fund two students’ participation in Horizons’ summer learning programs. The event also boasted a runway show featuring Elite Pour La Vie fashions and Etro handbags. Attendees, including retired Coca- Cola CEO John Brock and Clark University dean Fidel Turner Jr., dined on high tea-themed eats and drinks from Highland Bakery and Whispering Angel Rosé and enjoyed a pop-up gift suite from The Shops Buckhead.
