Hero Central: Lasagna Fundraiser for Cancer Foundation | News
Linda Cannon is all set to feed what she says hopefully will be a couple hundred people.
"My passion is cooking, so what better way to do something I enjoy and pay it forward," Cannon said.
She, along with other members of the Georgia Cancer Friends Foundation are making homemade lasagnas for a fundraiser Friday night.
"A lot of people go out to eat on Friday nights and you have to wait in long lines, and you may be on your way to a local football game, but instead you can come out and support a great cause."
Cannon has made 9 lasagnas so far and is looking forward to serving them at Trinity United Methodist church in Warner Robins.
"This is actually the Georgia Cancer FriendsFoundation's inaugural fundraiser. This is the first time that we've done this, and we're hoping for a big turnout."
Friday From 5 -7:30 p.m., homemade lasagna dinners with all the trimmings will be served up right here for $10.
She says the event will help introduce the community to their organization which works to help cancer survivors in need.
"We've had several family members that have had cancer and through this foundation, if a cancer survivor needs help with their utility bill or mortgage payment or grocery bill, they'll go through a strict screening process and if we are able to help them, we can," Cannon told us.
The non-profit she says not only provides financial assistance but emotional and spiritual support.
Cannon says she feels thankful that she's able to do her part, with the help of one lasagna dinner at a time.
You can buy tickets at the door or get them in advance by calling 478-953-1377.
The event is Friday September 21, 2012 at Trinity United Methodist Church at 129 South Houston Road in Warner Robins.
All lasagna dinners come with a salad, garlic bread, dessert and beverage for ten dollars. You can dine in or grab one to go.
