Brunch is a gay Atlanta tradition. So is partying with a purpose. Combine the two and you get Respect the Brunch, which raised funds for Voices of Note during its monthly event on Saturday.
The boozing and brunching took place at Zocalo, which donated a portion of its sales to the cause. A raffle added more to the till and corporate sponsor Salesforce doubled those proceeds. All that cash went to Voices of Note, which is the parent organization for the Atlanta Gay Men's Chorus and the Atlanta Women's Chorus.
Respect the Brunch launched in 2013.
