Wine tasting contest benefits cancer patients, families

Posted: Updated:

People from all over South Georgia sipped wine in Albany for a good cause, Thursday.

They attended a blind wine tasting contest at the Albany Museum of Art to benefit the Pay it forWARD fund.

It helps families with children battling cancer.

Organizers say the money benefits local families and is crucial for them.

"There are families that have to choose between paying their house payment and getting their child to treatment. So this is really important because life continues to go on even when your child is in the midst of a cancer struggle," said Event Organizer Maranda Wright
