United in Pink of Macon is throwing down the cards to raise money for those affected by breast cancer.

United in Pink raised $27,000 at last year's event. This year, there is a silent auction with around 30 items up for bid, and there is a raffle, too, for a 2017 Acura.

The money raised goes to help not only breast cancer survivors, but the families, too. Laura Paxton with United in Pink says,"For a husband, when you can't fix something, you can't change that diagnosis or the treatment. It's very difficult, and so we really want to reach out to those men and let them know you're not alone. There's other men that have been through this."

United in Pink Vegas is August 19th from 7p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Idle Hour Country Club in Macon.

Tickets start at $50 per person.
