Cancer patients, supporters invited to Tea for Hope



“We will give a door prize for the best hat to a regular person and to a cancer patient. We also have benches for businesses to sponsor. We have four left for $100 each and it will look like a billboard to be given away as door prizes,” White said. “This is a wonderful event for women and children. Everyone is still talking about the wonderful time they had last year.”

Of the 150 tickets for sale, 70 tickets are still available for $30 each and can be purchased at the Magnolia State Bank locations in Milledgeville and Gray, at Trish Ann’s Antiques Gifts & Tearoom in Haddock, or on the GCS website via PayPal.

“If you can’t come but would like to sponsor a cancer patient, you can also make a $30 tax deductible gift and help a cancer patient have a blessed day that might not can afford a ticket. We have about 42 women that are on our cancer list that can’t afford to come to the tea party that is in their honor,” White said. “With $30, we can buy two boxes of Boost. With $50, we can buy medicine for two cancer patients for one week.”

Sponsors for this year’s tea party include Magnolia State Bank, Serenity Wellness Spa & Salon, Linda’s Attic & Antique Emporium, Designing Line, Charmed Beauty Spa, Beckham’s Used Cars, Childre Chevrolet, Papa John’s Pizza, Chick-fil-A and more.

White created GCS to serve Georgia cancer patients and their families by providing support and resources in all areas with a focus on the needs of each patient. GCS officially kicked off Jan. 1 last year and the nonprofit plans to continue ministering and providing excellence through networking, researching, education and community service. Volunteers, educators and outreach workers collaborate to make a difference in every patients life.
