Hello Atlanta NACE members, for those who have not heard as yet, we have lost a long standing and integral part of our special events industry. Robert Hochdorf with Button It Up passed away after a battle with a rare form of leukemia and blood cancer on Friday, June 5, 2020. Robert was Sharon Hochdorf’s husband and Joel Miller’s father-in-law, also of Button It Up.

The beauty remembered about Robert was his sincere smile and diligent work ethic. Whenever Robert went out on a party as the photographer for Button It Up and you saw him setting up, he always had a kind word and a beautiful smile. He would then make sure he was where the planner wanted him to be setting up and become a part of the Party TEAM. Once he was prepared, he always made a point to greet everyone and be prepared to begin on time. Everytime.  He will truly be missed and our hearts go out to Sharon, Joel and the rest of the Hochdorf family.

We, as a chapter, have an awesome opportunity to honor Robert’s memory and show our support to his family through a program that helped Robert with his battle against his leukemia. The organization is called Be The Match. www.bethematch.org helps people everyday who are diagnosed with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma. In their words, “A cure does exist”. We are setting up a donation space on the Atlanta NACE website for you to donate what you can, and, are comfortable donating, and, then as a Chapter, we will match up to $250 in donations from our Community Service outreach programs.

The registration to donate will be LIVE from June 15, 2020 through June 27, 2020 and then our Chapter match, along with your donations, will be sent to Be the Match. The donation categories will be available in amounts of $10.00, $25.00 and $50.00. You can certainly do more by plugging in however many increments of any of these values you choose on the registration payment button opportunity. Please take a moment to be re-directed to the registration portal and give what you can now.

AS a community of event professionals, it is hard to lose a member to anything. We hope this is a small way to help each of us give back to our community and lighten the load for others through our support.

Thank you for your participation and we look forward to seeing everyone SOON!

Atlanta NACE Chapter Board
