Albany -- Hundreds popped the cork Saturday night while benefiting a local charity.

Over 300 people attended Wine Market 2008, a fundraiser benefiting Girls Incorporated of Albany.

This is the eighth year the board of trustees and community committee put this event together. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to Girls Inc.

"It's actually one of the premiere wine tasting in Southwest Georgia. The great thing about it is that people can not only come out here and taste wine, but we have about 15 artist from all over the state offering a a variety of pottery, art and jewelry for sale," said Executive Director, LaKisha Bryant.

A portion of those sales also goes to Girls Inc. Girls Incorporated is a life skills program for girls ages 7 to 18 years old.

Last year Girls Inc. helped more than 2,200 girls in the Dougherty and Terrell counties.
