ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Nelson-Tift building in downtown Albany will be transformed into a Wine Market on Saturday. Girls Inc. of Albany's annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auction will raise money for the 42-year-old non-profit.

Girls Inc. has had tremendous success with local girls, including a 100 percent high school graduation rate.

"I think Girls Inc. works because its programs are designed for girls in a setting with girls," said Girls Inc. Board President Joe Dent.

The Wine Market will feature wines from vineyards across Georgia, and delicious food and cheeses.

Doors open at 6 p.m.
