OCTOBER 12, 2016
The inaugural Middelthon-Candler Gala was held when the Millennium Gate Museum (The Gate) opened in 2008. Matthew Middelthon, a descendant of Coca-Cola founder Asa G. Candler, established the Middelthon-Candler Peace, Justice, and Millennium Gate Prizes to continue the family’s stewardship of the state of Georgia. All proceeds from the gala are used to further the mission of The Gate and The National Monuments Foundation.
On display at the museum during the gala The Games: Ancient Olympia to Atlanta to Rio, will showcase ancient Greek artifacts, many exceeding 3,000 years of age. The exhibition will introduce visitors to the mythology of Mount Olympus and the twelve Olympian Gods as this mythology played a momentous role in the lives of the ancient Greeks. This mythology acted as the foundation for the ancient games, a social event where athletes and spectators of foreign poleis fraternized, as well as competed in peace.
