Lupus Awareness Bowl set for this weekend

The 2nd Annual Lupus Awareness Bowl is set for Saturday in Tifton.

Audry Green and Christie Ledger will take part in a survivor walk at halftime of the game. Tifton's Georgia Firebirds and the Georgia Crush from Macon will be playing. More than 1.5 million people in America have lupus.

"It [attending the game] is very important because there is no cure," said organizer Pat McKinnon. "That's why we call it the unmasking of the cruel mystery of a disease ... there is no cure for it."

Tickets for the game are $8 or just $5 if you buy a lupus awareness t-shirt.
