"From watching everything on television and realizing how close it came to hitting Tifton, I believe we are very, very lucky," said Garfield Rhaney, who as "The G-Man" is a regular deejay at the cafe. "I want to challenge every business and every person to do something to help those people."

Rhaney and other Half Time Cafe deejays Phillip "DJ PhilGood" Moody, Jessica "MC Mixxie" Tolbert, and Bennett "Wild Man Bennett" Boyd are regular disc jockeys at the cafe. They'll be joined by special guest DJs Frederick "Ready Freddy" Sanders, Jason "Deejay Jason" Hutchinson, Ronnie "the Traveling DJ" Dunn and Norris "T-Roy" Drayton beginning at 9 p.m.

Rhaney said that admission to the fundraising dance is a minimum of $5 and all of the money from the door will be donated to the American Red Cross.

"I am asking people, even those who don't go to bars, to drop by and drop the money off," Rhaney said.

Rhaney said that the deejays will be playing a wide variety of music that will appeal to people of all ages.

"We can mix it up pretty good and there will be lots of dancing," Rhaney said.

People must be at least 18 years old and have a valid identification to enter the establishment.

An official with the American Red Cross will be on hand to encourage donations, to explain the agency's function at times of disasters like Hurricane Katrina and to explain where donations go and the services the Red Cross offers.

There will be special prices on pizza during the night and Budweiser will donate items for auction. Radio 92.5 The Mix will be doing a live remote.
