Atlanta Spotlight

One-hundred-thirty years after Coca-Cola poured its first beverage in downtown Atlanta, The Coca-Cola Company and The Coca-Cola Foundation announced they are pouring money into improvements throughout the city’s Centennial Olympic Park District.

On May 16th, Coca-Cola Chairman and CEO Muhtar Kent announced the gift alongside Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed at a celebration hosted at the intersection of Peachtree and Marietta streets where the first Coca-Cola was served on May 8, 1886.

“There is no better way to celebrate 130 years of Coca-Cola than to give back to our hometown,” said Kent. “While Atlanta has always been and will always be Coca-Cola’s home, the Centennial Olympic Park District is our neighborhood.  For decades, we have continued to invest in improving the area around our headquarters to support the continued growth of tourism, business and residences right here in our backyard.”

Given by The Coca-Cola Company’s global philanthropic arm, The Coca-Cola Foundation, the grants announced today include support for five organizations in the Centennial Olympic Park District:

• $1 million to the Georgia World Congress Center Authority to support the expansion of green space and updates to facilities within Centennial Olympic Park.

• $500,000 to the PATH Foundation to support efforts to connect Centennial Olympic Park to Atlanta’s westside neighborhoods, including efforts to reconfigure Ivan Allen Blvd. with new bike and pedestrian trails and improved landscaping [ ... ]
