An evening with local Atlanta industry professionals
yields charitable results
by Melissa Randle
Recently some of the city's finest in film and entertainment gathered
at Hotel Indigo to attend the 3rd annual "Network By Candle
Light" event, hosted by founders Shedrick Garrett, Shawn Trotman,
and Gary McCoy. The event drew writers, directors (like Yolanda
Zellous), producers (Roger Bobb) and actors (such as Afemo Omilami
and Taurean Blacque), and included live performances by Sol Factor
and American Idol finalist/Actress Kinnik Sky.
In addition to facilitating a forum for positive networking, the
event sponsored "Hosea Williams Feed the Hungry & Homeless"
program by providing an onsite food drive to assist with upcoming
holiday meals, along with collecting over $500 in donations during
that night and the purchase of additional specially requested food
