Volunteers are needed to do everything from valet parking to being “buddies” with the guests of honor. Imagine getting all dolled up and decked out, and then making someone else’s day. Trust me, you have not seen joy until you’ve seen the guests of this event walk that red carpet, receiving applause the entire way down. (I was a “buddy” last year and the whole night moved me to tears.)
Date Night: The Standard
And speaking of shows, if you’d like to take one in, why not try something other than a movie, like Elm Street Cultural Arts Village. They are running Neil Simon’s “Laughter on the 23rd Floor” from Feb. 10-19 and it’s sure to be a fun addition to your perfect date.
Date Night: For the Young at Heart
Cody and Sarah Davis, both originally from Woodstock, love Billy Joel, which was why they traveled to Madison Square Garden on July Fourth weekend in 2014. After sightseeing in New York City on the first day, Cody found an artist to draw their caricature, a travel tradition with the couple. They sat patiently for the drawing to be completed and when the artist flipped around the finished product, Sarah laughed.
The drawing depicted Cody on one knee, proposing. It was at that moment that Cody dropped to one knee and popped the question. They were married a year and a half later at the Tate House in North Georgia and live happily in Woodstock with their adorable dog, Birdie.
