Breast Cancer Benefit to be Held for Dorothy Nickell June 14

VALDOSTA – A breast cancer benefit will be held for Dorothy Nickell, administrative assistant of Valdosta State University’s Women’s and Gender Studies program, at Hildegard’s Saturday, June 14 from 7 to 10 p.m.
The event will include music from The Backstreet Blazers and food from Covington’s as well as a variety of items from vendors such as Steele Magnolia’s, Bleu Café and Bleu Pub, Serenity Massage, Southerland Yoga, and Zant’s Flower Shop for a silent auction.
