The Torch Gala, the 25th annual fundraiser for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America’s Georgia Chapter, drew more than 520 people and raised over $430,000 for research and other programs Saturday night, Jan. 23, at the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead. It was a record turnout for the event, whose honorees included Stacey Rothberg, Volunteer of the Year; Dr. Michael LeVine, Premier Physician Award; and Habif, Arogeti & Wynne, Corporate Citizens of the Year. Steven Goodman and Marc Ratnowsky served as the co-chairmen of the gala. The goal for the night was to raise $400,000 to add to the $6.2 million the gala had raised in its first 24 years.
