ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Folks in Albany indulged on sweets for a good cause, Monday night.

Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital hosted its 2nd annual Miracle on Sweet Street.

Those who bought tickets got to try out chocolate, gumballs, lollipops, cotton candy and other hundreds of pounds of candy all to raise money for Children's Miracle Network to help sick children in South Georgia.

"100% of every dollar raised tonight or any Children's Miracle Network event stays here in our community to buy equipment and provide service for ill and injured children in Southwest Georgia," said Children's Miracle Network Coordinator Amanda Biery.

If you missed out Monday, the event continues Tuesday night from 6 pm to 8 pm at the former Ordinary Coyote building on Meredyth Drive.

Tickets are $75 for a family of four or $20 for individuals.
