Speaking of the Braves, the Vinings Business Association is welcoming the
[Atlanta Braves]team’s move nearby.


“The VBA is the only business association in the same zip code as the new 
SunTrust Park, so we embrace the Atlanta Braves as members of the VBA,”
Chairman Glenn Christian said. “We have had (Vice Chairman) John Schuerholz
and the General Manager(John Coppolella) speak at our meetings to keep us
updated on the Braves and their activities.”


The association meets monthly [see website for location] and hosts other
monthlyand special events. In addition to the association’s Braves game
outing April 18, 2017 Christian said : 
“We do a lot of events that impact the
community, so we concentrate on quality 
events for people to network, increase
their contact database and 
enhance their business,” he said.

VBA Donates to Food Drive

The Vinings Business Association (VBA) is donating $500 to the annual Thanks for Giving food drive administered by the Center for Family Resources (CAVER) in Marietta, in recognition and support of their community event of collecting and distributing boxes of food to Cobb families during the Thanksgiving season.


According to volunteer coordinator Alicia Ferguson at the CFR, “We believe in collecting and providing all the ingredients necessary for a family to make their own Thanksgiving
meal at home, in a way that supports and honors their own family traditions.  Thanks for Giving does so much more than provide a meal. It provides a continuation of a family's holiday expectations and way of life.”


Charles Rea, 2016 president of the VBA said, “We realize that Thanksgiving week can be even more financially stressful when students are home from school for more than just the
holiday meal. Through participation in the annual Thanks for Giving food drive, our generous community captures the true spirit of Thanksgiving.”
