DOWNTOWN ON THE BRICKS

About Dinner on the Bricks

Dinner on the Bricks for The Vashti Center promises to be a fun-filled dining evening. For our September 26th event, patrons will gather a table of friends, family, or co-workers to dine on the historic bricks of Jackson Street between the blocks of Madison Street and Stevens Street. Tables of eight start at just $300 each for patrons, with all proceeds benefitting the children. The table, white linen tablecloth and chairs are provided, everything else is up to the patron. We highly encourage you to get creative with the table decor and let your appetites decide whether you bring your own dinner or hire a caterer. Tables will go on sale to the public August 3rd, with 125 tables available for purchase. Creativity is key! Costumes are welcome! Awards in various categories will be presented to winners by our celebrity judges! EVENT GUIDELINES

Our Proceeds

Support Dinner on the Bricks

100% of the proceeds from this event will benefit programs that fulfill the spiritual, physical and mental health needs of children served by Vashti.

As provider of residential and community mental health services for children and youth from 6 to 17 years of age, Vashti receives broken spirits into its care each day. Many come to our Residential Care Program from DFCS and the Juvenile Justice System, carrying with them heavy burdens from abuse and neglect. That good news is that many lives are transformed because of the outstanding counseling and spiritual assistance provided by our caring team of childcare workers, experienced therapists, trained mentors, resident chaplain and special school resources.

Last year, 64 children were served in Residential Care (located on our East Clay Street campus) and 250 children and their families through our Community Mental Health Program serving Thomas, Brooks, Colquitt, Decatur, Grady, and Mitchell Counties. Your participation in Dinner on the Brinks will help children and families in the care of Vashti find peace, healing, and renewal.
