ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of South Georgians grabbed a bite to eat at an Albany restaurant, and helped raise money for a good cause at the same time. 

Cancer ties teamed up with Loco's Pub & Grill for their third promotional event for their annual fundraiser this weekend. 

Locos is donating 10 percent of total sales from Wednesday night to the event. 

The non profit provides direct financial assistance to cancer patients and their families throughout the year.

This  fundraiser event will raise money for Baconton resident Jonathan Sangster, who is battling Hodgkin Lymphoma. 

"To be able to stand in that room and see that recipient being supported by not only just their friends and family but complete strangers that identify with their situation," said Cancer Ties Executive Director Carrie Hutchinson. 

Cancer Ties Camilla event is Saturday at Merry Acres.

Doors opens at 6 p.m. Advance tickets costs $25 and $30 at the door.
