Nest Fest was a Huge Success Because of YOU!

As a not-for-profit organization, The Nest Nursery School plans fundraising events to offset expenses and build an  exceptional educational progam.  On Saturday night, November 16 the school held its 2nd annual benefit concert and auction.  The Nest Fest was a wonderful success thanks to our whole school community, our friends and family that came out to celebrate with us, and the southeast Atlanta community at large.  Dozens of local businesses donated goods and services to support the school.  Please patronize these businesses when you can and let them know that you appreciate their generosity!

A HUGE thank you to our fabulous entertainment!  5097378_orig
