Honoring Ann & Tom Cousins

In its inaugural year, this signature event honored Ann and Tom Cousins for their vision and dedication to community revitalization, and celebrated more than two decades of renewed hope, opportunity and possibility for families in East Lake.

The impact of the Cousins’ vision has been felt not only in Atlanta, but throughout the country as the East Lake Foundation’s impactful formula is replicated in communities of similar poverty and cyclical strife all over America. Their ideas, effort and incredible generosity have provided generations of residents in these communities a path to prosperity and opportunity.
