People party for a good cause at Cancer Ties event

September 20, 2007

Albany -- Nothing beats a good party, unless it's a party for a good cause. Thursday night, the State Theater hosted the first Cancer Ties event.

It will benefit an Albany woman diagnosed with breast cancer in May. Ties were sold, and items were up for auction. The J Blues Band and Queen Kong also performed at the fundraiser.

"When someone got sick or had a problem the community stepped up. It's not that way now. Everybody is pretty selfish, and no one is concerned for the greater good. The committee members feel strongly about raising money for Allison this year. If it's a success like we think it will be, then we will pick a different beneficiary every year," said Allison's friend, Sam Shugart.

One hundred percent of the money raised tonight will go to Allison Salter.
