BAGS, BLING & BINGO
Our 9th Annual Event is Back!
More than 100 supporters gathered on the panoramic rooftop of Carroll Daniel Construction in Gainesville for the ninth annual PGCS fundraiser, Bags, Bling & Bingo, held September 25, 2022. Attendees enjoyed hors d’oeuvres catered by Easy B’s Kitchen of Gainesville, wine donated by Atlanta Improvement Company and an afternoon of fun for a good cause. Twelve rounds of bingo, called by Greg Rutledge with assistance from PGCS founder and CEO Sue Sigmon-Nosach and Gainesville native/UGA freshman Ella Miller, ignited the competitive spirit in everyone! Winner of the last round took home the grand prize Louis Vuitton purse, valued at $2,000, while other winners snagged couture bags by Brahmin, Coach, Michael Kors, Dooney & Bourke and more.
A silent auction and raffle featured fine jewelry, as well as a gift basket from Atlanta Motorsports Park. Bags, Bling & Bingo was made possible by our generous sponsors:

Ways to Give
PGCS is a NOT-FOR-PROFIT organization that takes no salaries and depends entirely on corporate grants, memorial gifts, general private and public donations, and one annual fundraiser to assist others.
PGCS was originally funded in 2013 through the generosity of the Gambill Family Foundation and Ken and Debbie Torbett. These founding patrons enabled the mission of PGCS to begin to be a channel of assistance for women in the greater North Atlanta metro area and NE Georgia. Since our inception, many others – both individuals and corporations – have helped us expand our mission. Their support and recognition of our efforts is truly appreciated.
Become a volunteer or an advocate to ensure that our good work keeps going. No matter your passions or interests, there’s a place for your gifts on our team. We would love to hear from you and can’t wait to work with you.
As you might imagine, helping others in their cancer journey is not free. That is why we need businesses and people like you. Perhaps you will choose to donate in someone’s honor or memorialize a loved one – either way your gift will help make a difference.
Watch how one gift card impacted the lives of hundreds of women plus a wonderful surprise at the end!
