Creston’s annual Pink Garden Tea fundraiser for A Clear ViewPosted: June 28, 2012

If memory lane moments are your cup of tea, then this upcoming fundraiser for the A Clear View ~ digital mammography campaign is for you.

Delicate tea cups filled with fragrant and tasteful delights of New York’s finest Harney & Sons tea accompanied with finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones topped with mouthwatering jam ending with an array of lovely desserts will welcome you to the third annual Creston Pink Garden Tea.

The Pink Garden Tea was started in 2010 by Debbie Graham to honour two of her family members facing breast cancer.  Debbie tells East Kootenay Foundation for Health that watching their courage and hope encouraged her to create something that would help other women in Creston battling the illness.

After two successful years and knowing her dream event is helping others, Debbie decided for year three to expand the event in support of East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s fundraising drive to bring a digital stereotactic mammography unit to the regional hospital.

“I just love the whole ceremony about traditional teas, when I combine that with a charitable cause that is going to help many women it makes it all the more special,” shares Graham.

The Pink Garden Tea will have two seatings, one on Friday, July 27 at 7 p.m. and the second on Saturday, Jul 28 for afternoon tea at 2 p.m.  Admission is by donation and tea enthusiasts are encourage to sip and listen to beautiful harp music, to shop at the Tea Market Boutique, to see Creston artist Laura Leeder paint a special Pink Garden Tea teacup picture (gift cards available) and to visit recognized Creston author Valerie Comer to autograph her latest book.

Also on hand will be Carmen Lancaster, cancer survivor and winner of the quilt of 2011 displaying ’the sisterhood of the traveling quilt’ a symbol of hope for many facing a breast cancer diagnosis.

Early registration is welcomed and tables can be reserved in advance by calling Debbie Graham at 250-428-7182, cell 250-402-9144 or picking up tickets at Morris Flowers on Canyon St.

All proceeds from the tea will go to the East Kootenay Foundation for Health.  For more information on the A Clear View campaign visit www.aclearview.ca.
