Welcome to JCI Atlanta's Guest speaker series. This month we have Gary Marshall.

Gary is an active Jaycee member, having served in various leadership roles at the local, state and international levels of the Junior Chamber International.  He also currently serves on the GA Jaycees Foundation Board at the pleasure of the GA Jaycees. Gary will be discussing his experience as a Jaycee and be officially recognized as a JCI Senator.

Mr. Marshall is an entrepreneur, an avid basketball player, a husband and father of four boys.  When he's not advocating for Camp Dream, you might find him networking or coaching his boys in basketball or baseball.

St. Baldrick's Foundation Fundraiser at Ri Ra Irish Pub

  • Ri Ra Irish Pub

The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. Get involved and you'll be giving hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers.

This year, JCI Atlanta is partnering with Ri Ra Irish Pub again to raise awareness and fundraise for this event. Since 2010, the American Haircuts' St. Baldrick's event at Ri Ra Irish Pub Atlanta has raised over $880,000 and has seen over 1,313 men and women go bald for the cause of curing kids' cancer. 2016 is going to be even bigger and balder than ever. Our goal for 2016 is $200,000 and we hope you'll join us! Shave. Donate. Volunteer.

If you're interested in becoming a fundraiser for St. Baldrick's, register here and learn more about this cause here.
