84th Annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival

You’ve been to galas…
You’ve walked for your favorite cause…
You’ve been to ALL of the other fundraising events!

Now, here’s your chance to do absolutely nothing but offer support by simply donating online.

We’re cutting through the expenses of producing a fundraising event, which means 100% of your donation goes directly to provide art supplies to more than 80 high schools in greater Atlanta.

You are cordially invited to stay home for a good cause.

The Atlanta Dogwood Festival presents its


No-Show Ball

No need for a new gown or tuxedo, just donate in any amount through December 31, 2020. All funds support youth arts,and you don’t have to leave your house.

What is a No-Show Ball?

For $25

We COULD provide you with a buffet or a sit down dinner.
But instead of dining on mediocre chicken at a big table with
people you don’t know, stay home, make tacos, and simply donate online.

For $50

We COULD provide an open bar.
Or you could enjoy your favorite beer, wine and cocktails from
the comfort of your own sofa while visiting our No-Show Ball webpage.

For $75

We COULD welcome you to the latest, greatest event facility, and you
COULD commit a whole evening to dressing up, listening to speeches and supporting our cause.
But you probably don’t CARE to do that, and we AREN’T going to ask you to.

Here is what we would like you to do…

STAY HOME, don’t call a babysitter, ignore Uber, and watch a movie on TV … but only after you go online and buy your “ticket” to the event that isn’t happening and you won’t be attending.

A special NO-SHOW Online Art Auction in February 2020 will feature works by the artists selected for the 2020 Atlanta Dogwood Festival and some previous Atlanta High School Art Exhibition winners. Bid early and bid often for works before they are featured at the artist’s market.

A sneak peek at the art, your PJs and the chance to support children in the arts – this is why we are hosting the No-Show Ball rather than asking you to add another event to your busy schedule.

You’re welcome.

As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, the Atlanta Dogwood Festival will donate all proceeds from the No Show Ball and Online Art Auction directly support art programs at Atlanta-area High Schools.
