Masquerade ball benefits cancer research

February 2, 2008

Albany -- Many in the "Good Life City" hid their faces Saturday night for a good cause.

The American Cancer Society held their first annual Masquerade Ball at the Hilton Garden Inn.

Dinner was served along side entertainment provided by our own Karla Heath-Sands and The Reflections.

The money raised through ticket sales, sponsorship and the auctions will go toward cancer research.

"Every person that will be in that room this evening has been effected by cancer either personally or through a friend or family. And we all have been touched; everyone everywhere has been touched by cancer. And what we are trying to do is put an end to it," said Danielle Downs.

The American Cancer Society hopes to raise $30,000 from the Masquerade ball.
