THE ROOM SERVICE ATLANTA 2013 PARTY PICS…THIS IS HOW WE DO IT June 11, 2013 Listen to me—when I tell you this party was SO much fun, I tell you no lie. Each year our wrap party gets bigger and better, and what I love so much about these pics is that Katlyne Hill–the photographer who so graciously donated her services to cover our event–did an EXCELLENT job at capturing the energy and feel that was alive in the showroom last Thursday (and THIS is why professional photography is so important!!). Everyone truly had a blast…and I think it shows. As always, I can’t sing the praises of our Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams partners enough. Ben Collins, Jonathan White & Brian Waidelich continually support us, push and encourage us to do more and more each year and we wouldn’t be all that we are today without their support. They got behind us when all we had was a dream for RSA–but nothing tangible to show for it–and haven’t looked back! This year MGBW Atlanta donated over $30,000 worth of furniture & lighting to our project at UMCH (and I mean the good stuff, y’all) and it made all the difference. From sofas to dining tables, nightstands, lighting, console tables, dressers, almost every designer’s room featured something from the MGBW stash…and for that, Erika & I are eternally grateful. So without further adieu, here are some pics from our party…be sure to visit the MGBW Facebook page to see more and please join us at UMCH this Saturday, June 15th from 12-3pm for an Open House to see all of the incredible transformations & meet our talented designers. My girlfriend Cami…love this girl!! Erika & I with RSA Participating Designers Kandrac & Kole, Lori Mary & Rhoda Vickers Part of the MGBW Atlanta team Hands down, The Varsity was a hit!! These 3 ALWAYS come out to support my events. Met them years ago while taking design classes and we’re still as close as we were then! The Kandrac & Kole team Erika and I…we finally slowed down enough to get some pics together this time! MJ, on the left, has been one of my biggest supporters from waayy back when. She’s publishing a book in the Fall and is donating $1 from the sale of each book to RSA. Sherry Hart & photostylist/author, Annette Joseph I got to know Helen’s mom pretty well during the install and she is such a dear–she’s pledged to be a stand-in for my Atlanta mom since my mom is all the way across the country. I swear she must’ve worked as hard as her daughter in getting her room together…such a sweet lady!

Bob Bruder-Matson, CEO of UMCH Eddie Ammonds Brumbaugh, Jackson Charles Design Studio Angela Blehm Tobey Sanders, Ben Collins, Erika Ward & Eddie Ammonds Brumbaugh Erika & Tiffini Gatlin, EIC of Atlanta Tastemaker magazine (love this pic of them!)
