MILTON, Ga. – On a cloudless, chilly afternoon Jan. 26, ice sculptors assiduously carved away at 300-pound chunks of frozen water. The weather was all too appropriate for the occasion, Fire and Ice, a marathon sculpting event and reception held in Atlanta by Milton-based Children's Charities Inc. Proceeds go toward Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's purchase of a $240,000 Autism Detection Unit that will be located at their facility in the Avenue Forsyth, said Mandy White, co-founder of Children's Charities.

White's organization will be hosting another creatively themed event, Denim and Diamonds, April 27 at Shannondale Farms in Milton to raise more funds for the unit. The evening includes dinner under a covered riding arena, a culinary competition, a silent auction and live music. For more information, visit childrenscharitiesga.org.
