MILLEDGEVILLE — Georgia Cancer Support (GCS) founders Robbie and Danny White invite cancer patients and their families to a fishing rodeo this weekend as a way to enjoy the outdoors and learn proper fishing techniques with professional fishermen.

In partnership with Jay’s HOPE Foundation, the event is slated from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Gordon and Denise Beal’s pond, located a 141 Salem Church Dr.

A hay ride and face painting activities will be available for children.

Those interested in attending, must contact the White’s by Thursday in order to be included in the head-count for a lunch of hamburgers and hot-dogs and a T-shirt.

Papa John’s Pizza locations in Milledgeville, Dublin, Macon, Warner Robins and Perry will support GCS from May 21 to June 24 by donating $1 to the nonprofit for every $9 large, two topping pizza is ordered online using the promotional code GCS.
