    The Day1 Ministry will hold its annual benefit banquet on Tuesday, March 19 at the Cherokee Town and Country Club in Atlanta at 6:30 p.m. For the fifth year the event will honor leaders in the Atlanta area who are known for their commitment to the good of the community, but who may not have been recognized for their deep commitment to their church and the religious community. The event supports the radio and internet ministry, Day1 (formerly the Protestant Hour).

    Representatives from each of the participating denominations on Day1 will be recognized. This year’s honorees will be:

    Cooperative Baptist Fellowship: The Rev. Dr. R. D. Spear, Jr., Chaplain and Vice President, Cecil B. Day Foundation, Dunwoody Baptist Church

    Episcopal Church: Winifred Davis, Community Volunteer and Tread Davis, Senior Counsel, McKenna, Long & Aldridge, All Saints’ Episcopal Church

    Evangelical Lutheran Church: The Honorable Dorothy Toth Beasley, Senior Judge, State of Georgia & Mediator and Arbitrator at Henning Mediation & Arbitration Service, Inc., Lutheran Church of the Redeemer

    Presbyterian Church: Florida Ellis, Community Volunteer and Doug Ellis, Former CEO, Southern Mills, First Presbyterian Church of Atlanta

    United Church of Christ: Douglas R. Hooker, P.E., Executive Director, Atlanta Regional Commission, First Congregational Church UCC

    United Methodist Church: Lillian Darden, Retired President and CEO, the Foundation of Wesley Woods and Buddy Darden, Senior Counsel, McKenna, Long & Aldridge, Marietta First United Methodist Church

    Tickets for the event are $175 per person and can be purchased online at http://day1benefit.eventbrite.com or call Rebecca Kurziak at 404-418-6772 to make your reservation.

    Produced and hosted by Peter Wallace, Day1 is distributed nationally to over 200 stations each week, including NewsTalk WSB in the Atlanta area (AM 750 and 95.5 FM, Sundays at 7:05 a.m.). It is also accessible by podcast at Day1.org. The award-winning program is produced by the Alliance for Christian Media in association with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, the Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Presbyterian Church, the United Church of Christ, and the United Methodist Church.

    Day1 began in 1945 when leaders of several major denominations and church-related colleges and seminaries came together with the goal of spreading the gospel through radio. Every week since then, the program has presented sermons from preachers across America, bringing faith to people around the world.
