Special Ticket offer Available for Cirque D'OR Performance

Atlanta, GA--  The Golden Dragon Acrobats will perform Cirque D'OR at Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre 8 p.m., Friday, Oct. 15. The show was rescheduled from July 9 due to a power outage caused by a severe thunderstorm.

Patrons may keep their Cirque D'OR July 9 tickets and present them on Oct. 15 to be seated in the same location as printed on the tickets. Golden Dragon Acrobats represent a time-honored tradition that began more than 27 centuries ago. From Hebei, China, the company has traveled around the world and to all 50 states. Performers are trained in the art of acrobatics since youth and the troop has gained international acclaim.

A special ticket offer is available to patrons who purchase at the box office. For every one full-priced adult ticket purchased, you will receive a free ticket for one child 12 and younger. Adult reserved seats are $25 and adult lawn seats are $15.

Holiday Help for Cobb County Families in Need

MARIETTA, GA -- Hundreds of Cobb County families live near, at or below the poverty line. They could use a boost, especially during the holidays.

This year, the Center for Family Resources, in partnership with the Department of Family and Children Services, will register 1,500 Cobb families for the 2010 Thanks for Giving campaign. It is estimated that this year will mark the largest Thanksgiving food distribution in the organization's history; it will take nearly 70,000 food items to ensure that every family in need receives the essentials for Thanksgiving.

Registration for Thanks for Giving 2010 will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 6 and Thursday, Oct. 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Cobb County Civic Center (548 South Marietta Parkway, Marietta, 30060). At this time, families can also sign up for the Cobb Christmas program.

Distribution of food boxes to registered families will be on Friday, Nov. 19 and Saturday, Nov. 20 at Jim R.
