Coaches are my heroes. They love their sport, their competitors and communities. In this month’s super sporty issue, you’ll meet three Dunwoody and Sandy Springs residents who make coaching a priority. Brian Krehmeyer is the head basketball coach at the Wesleyan School. Claudiu Vidulescu is Head Coach with the U.S. Cliimbing Team and Liz Kennedy coaches the varsity girls basketball team at The Lovett School. They all bring an unparalleled energy to their sports and we salute them this month.
It’s a month of doing and giving in the Lifestyle Publications world. We had fun planning a contest for you to win a day of pampering with hair and make-up at Van Michael Salon, dinner at Davio’s Italian Steakhouse and massages and a luxury stay at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, with transportation for the winner plus one pal compliments of Posh Limousine. Head to our website to enter and splash out the contest on your social media for me!
We’ll be eating out a lot this month, supporting Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities (ARMHC) during Brookhaven Dines Out, a series of benefit nights at neighboring eateries and restaurants in the readership of our sister mag, BuckHaven Lifestyle. A percentage of all sales on scheduled days will benefit the families served at Atlanta’s two Ronald McDonald Houses. Participating Buckhead and Brookhaven restaurants include: Genki, Lucky’s Burger and Brew, Nancy G’s, Newk’s Brookhaven, Moe’s, Taziki’s, The Southern Gentleman, Zoe’s and many more. For a full calendar listing of dates and participating restaurants, please visit ARMHC.org.
Have a sporty month and enjoy our September issue.
P.S. That’s me leading the charge with my family on the 8-mile loop around historic Mackinac Island on Lake Michigan last month.
