About the event
Just after the embers had cooled from the devastating fire at the Georgia Theatre in the summer of 2009, representatives from The Georgia Trust came to Athens to offer their assistance. After touring the rubble, they agreed to establish a rehabilitation fund which could quickly provide the means to pay architects and engineers to get on site and determine if a rebuild was possible. Eventually over 300 citizens donated over $315,000 to the fund, and with preservation guidance from The Georgia Trust, the Georgia Theatre opened its doors in August 2011.

"This is what The Georgia Trust does, stepping in to assist with endangered historic properties that need help and revitalizing communities all over the state. Their partnership was critical to the rebirth of The Georgia Theatre, so on January 12, 2013, we want to show our thanks with a special VIP event that benefits The Georgia Trust." - Wilmot Greene, owner of the Georgia Theatre
