It has been an Atlanta Council BBYO tradition to host a kickoff event for each school year, and this year it was festival of color.Atlanta BBYO Holds Color Me Kickoff 2

More than 260 high-schoolers celebrated the BBYO Color Me Kickoff at the Marcus Jewish Community Center on Sunday, Aug. 7. The theme was a nod to the Color Runs, in which participants are intermittently doused in colored powder. In addition to three color stops, the afternoon featured music, games and catering from Waffle House while the teens got to know one another. “We look forward to building on Color Me Kickoff’s momentum with other chapter kickoff programs and our first convention of the year on Aug. 26 to 28,” Atlanta BBYO Director David Hoffman said. BBYO is open to all Jewish ninth- to 12th-graders in the metro area. Visit atlantajcc.org/bbyo, e-mail bbyo@atlantajcc.org or call 678-812-3970 for more information.
