Night for a Cure

VALDOSTA — A Night for a Cure hopes to raise funds and awareness in the fight against cancer this week.

A Night for a Cure includes a live and silent auction to raise money to benefit the American Cancer Society. Auction items will include beach trips, restaurant gift certificates, tools from Harbor Freight, birthday packages along with a variety of other items ranging from large to small.

The Relay for Life team behind the fundraiser is known as Twisted Sisters. It is a group of women who got together in an effort to raise money for finding a cure. For many of the members, their lives have been directly affected by the horrors of cancer and many have lost loved ones.

“It’s a great blessing to help the community,” says team member Angela Kopszywa.

Last year, the team raised $15,000 from the auction with a majority of the funds coming back to help locally.

Twisted Sisters was the first team last year with Relay for Life to raise more than $20,000 for the cause. It also raises money via a poker run that will take place April 12 in Lake Park. A survivor dinner will also be held in April to honor those who survived cancer.

Valdosta-area band Southern Comfort will perform and heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served during a Night for a Cure. Tickets can be purchased from any Twisted Sister team member and more information can be found on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/NightForACure.

A Night for a Cure will be 7-11 p.m., Friday, March 28, Valdosta Country Club.

Tickets are $35 per person or $60 for two. This will include a drink ticket good for two domestic beers or one well drink.
