Valdosta --  Hundreds of people are expected to attend the fifth Annual South Georgia Women's Show in Valdosta this weekend. 

More than 90 Vendors will set up booths for what is going to be the largest show to date. Last year the show raised more than $16,000 for charity and this year they are hoping to raise even more.    

"We've committed to give away $25,000 this year," says Show Volunteer Margaret Sumner. "So we know we're going to do that much but we're hoping to do a lot more. We'd love to do the whole $42,000."  

The event will start Saturday morning at 9:00 at the Rainwater Conference Center on Norman Drive. Tickets are $5.00.
