At the end of this month, Yahoola Creek Park in Dahlonega will host a North Georgia area food drive to raise donations for local food pantries in Dawson, Lumpkin and White counties.
The fundraiser will start Aug. 27 at 10 a.m. at Yahoola Creek Park, 464 Mechanicsville Road in Dahlonega. The event will include a chance for attendees to meet law enforcement officers, GSP troopers and DNR rangers, as well as a bounce house for the children and live music by The Bad Habits.
The event will also include an “Ice Bucket Challenge”, in which attendees can bid on the opportunity to dump a bucket of ice water on the heads of Lumpkin County officials, Georgia State Troopers and others.
During the event, donations of canned food and cash will be accepted, and all donations will be divided equally between several food pantries. These food pantries will be The Place, Christ Fellowship, Kings Highway, Unseen Hand, Community Helping Place and the White County Food Pantry.
