Cancer patients, supporters invited to Tea for Hope

MILLEDGEVILLE —  

Georgia Cancer Support (GCS) is hosting its annual Tea for Hope event to provide some relief and faith and make a difference in the lives of people battling cancer in the middle Georgia area.

“We’re asking for the help of the entire community to come out and support us. It’s all of our responsibility to help those in need and with community support, we’re able to grow and continue filling those needs,” said Robbie White, founder of GCS and a colon cancer survivor. “This is my passion. Myself and so many cancer patients are so blessed, but there are cancer patients out there that feel like they are not loved or have the help they need. They need to have hope and faith in Jesus and know we are here to help because He has done so much for us.”

With the help of Bless You Sister, Sophia Peavy and Nita Chatham, this year’s English garden tea party is slated at 5 p.m. Saturday, April 27 at the home of Trish Ann at Standing Rocks Farm located at 2653 Ga. Hwy 49 in Haddock.

“Last year, we were able to raise $2,400 and the money went to four cancer patients that were part of the Faith Hope & Love Cancer Support Group,” White said. “This year, the money will benefit Georgia Cancer Support, which has a lot of cancer patients instead of designating it to individuals. We would love to raise $3,000; that would float us for a couple of months.”

During the late luncheon, breast cancer survivor Pam Pullie of Macon will be guest speaker to share her story about fighting the deadly disease while attendees enjoy scones, pimento cheese, chicken salad, croissants and desserts. Vendors will be set up to sell items from their businesses and various prizes will be available for bid during a silent auction, including gift certificates to area restaurants and salons, jewelry, spa packages, gift baskets and more.
