Connecting Henry recently received $2,180 from the second annual Celebration of Hope: A Community Benefit Luncheon that took place on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at the Hilton Garden Inn of McDonough. The event was hosted by the radio program Let's Talk America with Host Shana Thornton and honored public service in the Southern Crescent area.

This year’s event highlighted the local efforts of community leaders and the value of education and spotlighted Connecting Henry’s Students Working to Achieve Greatness (S.W.A.G.) program. Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit the SWAG Program, which is a GED program for students aged 16 to 24 years old.
