Ovarian cancer ranks as the fifth cause of cancer death in women.  In her lifetime, a woman has a 1 in 72 chance of contracting ovarian cancer and a 1 in 100 chance that the disease will be fatal.  Sadly, there is no way to predict who will get ovarian cancer, which is why the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance works so diligently to raise awareness and education.

So spend a Saturday night dancing, mingling, and bidding on some excellent pieces – it’s all for a good cause.
