Henry County Cancer Services hosting Kentucky Derby party

McDONOUGH — Henry County Cancer Services is hosting a themed party this year to raise money.

The Kentucky Derby fundraiser will be at Willowick Farms May 3, from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. The farm is at 246 Cronan Road in McDonough.

Women are invited to wear their best hats and men their best outfits. There will be contests for both.

Additionally, food and drinks will be served. There will also be a silent auction and charity race betting.

The mission for Cancer Services is to help “individuals and families struggling from the effects of cancer on their lives,” according to the organization’s website.

Funds raised for the organization help to provide medicine, doctor bills, co-pays, hospital bills, wigs, mileage reimbursement and nutritional supplements, the site said.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $35.
