Friends party for Joining Hearts hero in need

Add this share

Another sunny gay Atlanta Sunday Funday? Yes please. Friends and camaraderie? Definitely. Fundraising cocktails when you’re in dire straights? When you’re a Joining Hearts keystone Ben Hadsock, that’s what friends are for.

The event on Sunday at Ten Atlanta amped up the usual weekend fun at the venue with good times, good vibes and some good old fashioned fundraising for Hadsock, one of the charity's organizers. It also amped up the continued support for him after suffering a stroke earlier this month. Partiers hope to offset Hadsock’s out-of-pocket expenses and recovery time, which are both expected to be extensive.
