ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A center that helps young victims of sexual assault got support from a lot of South Georgians Tuesday night.  

People enjoyed a gourmet dinner and wine to benefit the Lily Pad Sexual Assault Center. Diners were served by local celebrities who worked as waiters and waitresses for tips.

The event will allow the Lily Pad to continue their lifesaving work. "We are experiencing funding shortfalls like many non-profits and hopefully events like this will enhance the services that Lily Pad provides," said Faison Middleton, Lily Pad Board of Directors.

Southwest Georgia Living Magazine., Bo Henry and Warehouse Liquors helped sponsor the event which could bring in as much as $10,000 for the non-profit.

Another benefit will soon bring more money in. Houses That Hope Built will allow people to bid on several huge playhouses November 5th.
