March 1, 2013It's that time of year again...time to help a great cause and have a little fun at the same time!
It's the second annual Game On Against Cancer to
benefit patient programs through the Thompson Cancer Survival Center in Knoxville. The money directly assists cancer patients with immediate incidental needs like wigs, transportation, food, and
lodging via The Thompson Cares Fund and The Fellowship Center.
|In the Game On event, guests purchase
tickets that entitle them to food, drinks and the opportunity to play games against their favorite celebrity. There are close to 30 celebrities who donate their time for the friendly competition.|
Con had so much fun with Blackjack last year, he signed up for the game again this year.

Mayors, Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett and Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero, were on hand to support this worthy cause.|
