A Saturday BBQ and silent auction in Moreland will help Melanie Myatt Rowe in her fight against breast cancer.

The event will be held at First Baptist Church in Moreland from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The cost is $8 per BBQ plate.

Rowe is undergoing chemotherapy, and this is her second battle with cancer.

To reserve a plate, call Wanda Bledsoe at 770-251-5747 or Pam Ford at 770-251-5556.

There will also be a silent auction to help with the medical costs, and costs related to treatments. Auction items will include a weekend stay at a nearby resort hotel and donations from local merchants.

If unable to attend the event, donors can visit United Bank on Bullsboro Drive in Newnan, where a medical need account has been established in Rowe’s name.

A benefit bike ride will be held at a later date.
