Local nonprofit, Fore Her, is excited to announce their 6th Annual Tea Fore Her presented by Platinum Pink Sponsor, Emerald Coast Hospice, on Sunday, February 9 at Vue on 30A starting at 1:00 p.m. Guests will enjoy tea and lunch with a gorgeous view and great company while raising funds for breast cancer patients along the Emerald Coast.
Gather your friends and join local nonprofit, Fore Her, for this signature fundraiser. During the event there will be a silent auction, photo booth, a complimentary glass of champagne, and more. Big hats are encouraged for a chance to win the “Best Hat” prize. For the first time, guests will enjoy complimentary valet at the event sponsored by Pizza by the Sea. Tickets are now available for purchase online at ForeHer.org for $50/person and $45 for breast cancer survivors. Children 12 and under $35. Guests will check-in with Registration Table Sponsor, Shoreline Title, upon arrival.
Fore Her has expanded in to a far-reaching support organization for breast cancer patients, using three signature events (Tea Fore Her, The Fore Her Golf Outing, and the Pink Walk) to raise funds and financially assist local individuals diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoing treatment. Funds raised are used to pay for mortgage/rent or utilities or helping with auto repairs for patients to get to treatments.
“I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a double mastectomy in January 2019,” shares Pam Knapp, recent Fore Her recipient. “Then in April 2019, I fell and fractured my spine. I was off work for six weeks in a back brace, only to find out the fracture was not healing. More testing found two tumors on my spine. After back surgery, another six weeks off of work, and medicals bills escalating, a friend told me about Fore Her. They generously helped me get caught up on my bills. Without them I would still be buried financially. I am very grateful for their financial and emotional support.”
Fore Her is here to offer resources, hope, compassion and education for all who are affected by breast cancer. And you can help!
“When I speak with all of our applicants, I’m not sure who is more emotional, me or them,” Ginny Richerson, Fore Her board member, said. “Each and every one of these ladies are so grateful to talk to a fellow survivor. The money we raise at this event helps us provide the additional encouragement they need to continue to have hope.”
