This holiday season, philanthropist and restaurateur Ebony Austin #EbonyAkira is spreading joy and giving back to her community in a big way. As the owner of Nouveau Bar & Grill #nouveaubaratl in Atlanta, Austin has always been passionate about making a positive impact on the lives of those around her. And this year, she took her philanthropy to new heights with a huge event that benefitted over 2000 families in the Atlanta area.
The theme for this year's event was 'Recreating Christmas,' and Austin and her team worked tirelessly to make it a memorable and magical experience for everyone involved. One of the highlights of the event was the special focus on the children of a breast cancer survivor. Austin believes that these children deserve to have a Christmas filled with joy and happiness, and she is determined to make that happen.
But Austin's philanthropic efforts do not stop there. She has also partnered with U.S. Foods to provide food, vegetables, and other necessities to families facing food insecurity. This is a cause close to Austin's heart, as she has previously worked with both Howard University and Morehouse College to address food insecurity among students.
The guest list for this event was nothing short of impressive, including Fly Guy DC, Kendra Robinson, Hurricane Chris, Dr. Contessa Metcalfe, Mz Shyneka, Gib the Realtor, DJ Zay Weezy, and many more. These individuals are not only well-known in their respective fields, but they also share Austin's passion for giving back to the community.
For Austin, this event is not just about providing material gifts to families in need. It is about spreading love, hope, and joy during a time that can be difficult for many. She hopes that by recreating Christmas for these families, she can bring a little bit of light into their lives and make their holiday season a little brighter.
