LOWNDES CO., GA (WALB) -

The Partnership Cancer Fund in Lowndes County is trying to raise awareness about the various forms of cancer.

Tomorrow they will hold their third annual "Drae Day" in Valdosta.

The event is named after Undrae Thomas, who lost his battle with renal cancer in 2011.
The event will raise money for the Partnership Cancer Fund and collect blood donations for cancer patients.

Event Coordinator Serwa Collins says while the event is primarily set up to help cancer patients, she also wants it to be about more than that.

"I don't want people to just come out and give blood and leave. I want everyone to be able to fellowship and understand. There'll be a lot of people remembering those that lost their battle wit cancer and people who are fighting cancer as well," Collins said.

The event is tomorrow from noon until five at James Saunders park in Valdosta.
