Glory, Hope & Life has found a way to give the best of both worlds to the folks who love fall sports and those who love helping others.

From 5 to 8 p.m. Aug. 23, the group will host their Tailgate Party at the Nickel Back Building at 116 Bradford St. in downtown Gainesville.

Tickets for the drop-in event are $35 per person, with $25 of that being tax deductible.

Among other things, there will be heavy hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, door prizes and a cash bar.

The tailgate is Glory, Hope & Life’s largest fundraiser of the year.

The nonprofit provides “opportunities and support for cancer patients, families and caregivers.”

The group supports programs like For Her Glory, which provides wigs for cancer patients who can’t afford them, and Harvest of Hope — an annual event that strives to improve the awareness of cancer prevention, detection and treatment.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards providing resources, programs and services to individuals in the community who have been affected by cancer.
