December 01, 2018
Proceeds of First Night Dahlonega support Jeremiah’s Place, Lumpkin County’s only transitional housing  facility for the homeless.

First Night Dahlonega -- THE way to ring in the New Year, with family-friendly entertainment all night New Year's Eve until the New Year begins with the dropping of the Gold Nugget.
Tickets are just $10 per person, children are free, for any and all events -- four different venues each with four different acts, including live music with North Georgia's best talent.  Activities for the kids, and fun for all.

The fundraiser is a project of North Georgia Interfaith Ministries, Inc. (NGIM) as they work to address the problem of homelessness in Lumpkin County.  NGIM is dedicated to providing the homeless with transitional housing as well as counseling and support services to address the root cause of their circumstances.  It is the vision of NGIM to give the residents hope and a future with the intent of changing the trajectory of their lives.
