The inaugural event was held at the same location two years ago before being moved to North Decatur Presbyterian Church in 2013.
“It began because our former director [Carol Daniel Klein], my boss for many years, died of cancer in 2011,” theater Director Nancy Riggs said. “At the time I had a nephew [Tyler Hayes] being treated at the Aflac Cancer Center at Children’s.
“One of the reasons I moved it back to the Landmark Diner is we are located in north Buckhead. I want to make the company a part of the community.”
At this year’s event the theater will present “Wish Tales,” three stories about wishing — “The Knee High Man,” “The Frog Prince” and “Little Orphan Animal.” They are recommended for children ages 3 to 8.
The inaugural event raised about $2,000 and last year’s brought in “a lot less,” Riggs said, adding she hopes the 2014 benefit will collect the same as the 2012 one.
Tickets are $10.
Reservations are helpful but not required. The venue is at 3652 Roswell Road.
