This past Saturday, June 10, participants were invited to paint the town red, or in this case blue, orange, yellow and white, one bar crawl at a time. Camp Twin Lakes’ Young Atlanta Leadership League (Y’ALL) hosted over 200 young Atlanta professionals at its first ever Color War Pub Crawl in the Virginia Highlands.
What better way to raise money for the campers at Camp Twin Lakes then to bring back the color war tradition while engaging the support of young adults throughout the Atlanta area? Guests were invited to come support the kids of Camp Twin Lakes by rocking a team color and then crawl their way through the local participating bars including: Atkins Park, Dark Horse Tavern, Diesel Filling Station, Limerick Junction and Neighbor’s Pub. The bars joined in on the fun by providing food and drink specials as well as some friendly competition with various social media contests.
By raising over $3,000, the participants were able to send kids with serious illnesses and other challenges to Camp Twin Lakes where they can be exposed to life changing camp experiences through the help and expertise of the professional staff and over 3,000 volunteers. With the help of Y’All and all those who supported the cause, the Color War Pub Crawl was a huge success.
