Going pink is a pleasure and helps a good cause
DRESS in pink for a decadent fundraising feast to be held at Summerland House Farm on Sunday, October 12.
The event, Tickled Pink High Tea for Breast Cancer, has been organised by Candy Lane and Summerland House Farm to raise money for the Breast Cancer Foundation.
Candy Fitness, from Candy Lane at Alstonville, encouraged women to dress in pink for this "beautiful" affair, which she has been hosting for four years now.
"I started this event because I lost a very dear friend to breast cancer," she said.
"Raising awareness about breast cancer is something that's very close to my heart.
"This isn't something that just affects older women - young women have been diagnosed with breast cancer, too.
"The high tea is about taking a negative and turning it into a positive.
"If we can help just one person, then it's worth it."
The high tea starts at 2pm on October 12, with pink champagne on arrival.
Meet the Alstonville showgirls and enjoy a fashion parade. There will also be lucky door prizes, raffles, local ballet dancers, and music from local duo GirlSeason.
The guest speaker will be breast cancer survivor and Alstonville woman Beth Whaanga, who has an "inspirational" story to share.
Candy said women should book their place as soon as possible.
"We have had to cap the numbers this year at 150 people," she said.
"It will sell out.
"I would really love women to come along wearing something pretty; something that makes them feel good.
"There's no pressure.
"This is about women getting together and enjoying each other's company."
