ATLANTA, Georgia-- Greetings, Georgia neighbors! Are you ready for a tail-wagging good time? AARP Georgia is thrilled to extend a warm invitation to three extraordinary events happening across our beautiful state. Join us as we celebrate caregiving, community, and the unconditional care of our furry friends!

What's in Store?

Mark your calendars for the AARP Georgia Paws for the Cause event, happening in three paw-tastic locations: Atlanta, Augusta, and Macon, on Saturday, May 18. Each event will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. We're rolling out the welcome mat for caregivers and inviting everyone to join in the festivities while embracing the spirit of togetherness.

Atlanta: Let the Paw-ty Begin!

Atlanta, prepare to indulge your senses at Historic Fourth Ward - Greenspace D! Explore a variety of vendors offering delightful treats, from Chef Wellington's culinary delights to the refreshing concoctions of Kona Ice. And for our beloved pets, Deborah from Four-Legged Foodie will ensure they're pampered too!
