ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Nothing beats a good party, unless it's a party for a good cause.

The state theatre in downtown Albany hosted the second annual Cancer Ties fundraiser Thursday night.

Ties were sold, and more than 100 items were offered in a silent auction.  Heart to Heart from Atlanta provided a little musical entertainment.

"The beauty of it is that every year's benefactor rolls on to the committee, so, in theory, after three or four years, you have three or four survivors of cancer running the show. And it basically perpetuates itself," said committee member Sam Shugart.

This year's benefactor is Miles Gooseman.  He lost his mother and only child to cancer, and he's been battling cancer for the past 11 years.
