Those in the mood for a taste of German culture can make plans for Oktoberfest, scheduled for 6 p.m. Oct. 24 at Reid's Barn.

Sponsored by volunteer group Forsyth Fights Cancer, the event — which features German music, food, live auctions and prizes — benefits the American Cancer Society.

Also featured at Oktoberfest is a Wall of Hope, where participants can post tributes, photos and messages in honor of someone who has survived or succumbed to cancer.

Event organizer Linda Conyers said it's a chance for "everyone in the community to spend an enjoyable evening while raising awareness and money to help fight cancer."

There are several ways for organizations and individuals to help.

They can buy tickets, donate items for raffles and silent auctions or become a sponsor. They also can honor a friend or family member, volunteer to work or make a donation.

Tickets for the event include a dinner featuring bratwurst, knockwurst, sauerkraut and German potato salad.

There are various levels of sponsorships available. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door.
