4th Annual "Windward for A Cure" Gearing Up!

A Special Note from our Friends to The East! Special thanks to Steve
Beechum of Hometown Mortgage for bringing this to our attention!

- Anderson Lee;

The Windward Community in conjunction with the American Cancer Society will be hosting a spectacular event with a history of generous support from our North Fulton community. The 4th Annual “Windward for a Cure: A Taste and A Toast”, will be held on Friday, April 13th at The Metropolitan Club. Join your friends for a fabulous evening complete with wine tasting, silent and live auctions and samplings from Alpharetta’s most fabulous restaurants. Last year, with community participation, this event raised $50,000 for the American Cancer Society.You can participate in this event by:

the Windward For A Cure: A Taste and A Toast!
Making a donation to the American Cancer Society (link to local chapter of ACS)
Donating an item for our silent or live auction
Purchasing a luminary to be lit the night of the event in honor of cancer survivors and those that have lost their battle with the disease.

The Metropolitan Club is located on Windward Parkway in Alpharetta, GA just East of 400.


A group of Windward tennis ladies began this event as a tennis tournament 7 years ago in memory of Kathleen Dyer, an avid Windward tennis player that lost her life to brain cancer within 3 weeks of being diagnosed. Three years ago we expanded the tennis tournament to include the whole Windward community by adding a silent auction/wine tasting at the Golf Club of Georgia. With a sellout audience last year this year we’ve changed locations to the Metropolitan Club so we can expand our event. Because of the participation of the Windward community and local businesses, we were able to raise $90,000 over the last two years for the Alpharetta branch of the American Cancer Society. We are excited about having the support of the whole community to get behind a cause that has affected each and every one of us.

Want to attend a really cool event? Windward for a Cure is holding it's fourth annual "A Taste & A Toast." At the door you will receive a special collectible wine glass to let tasting begin. There will be fabulous silent and live auction items. It is a night you won't want to miss! So bring your friends for some fun music and great food. The party starts a 7pm at the The Metropolitan Club. Help raise money for the American Cancer Society. See you there! Tickets can be purchased on line at For more information contact Mindy Jones at 770-475-8969.
