Partygoers sipped and noshed on Saturday while helping local kids in need at the 13th Annual Backpack in the Park.
The event at Greystone Pool Pavilion in Piedmont Park featured an open bar, heavy hors d’ouevres and music throughout the evening.
All it took to get in was a new backpack filled with school supplies, which will then be donated per the tradition of local nonprofit For the Kid in All of Us.
