Celebrate survivors at the 20th Annual Fashion to a Tea event


By Ellen Spinner



October is Breast Cancer Awareness month — and a great time to honor those who’ve been touched by the disease. “Puttin’ on the Ritz” edition of the annual Fashion to a Tea event will be held this Thursday, Oct. 12, at the Champaign County Fairgrounds with doors opening at 5 p.m. The event is co-sponsored by Mercy Health – Urbana Hospital and Breast Friends Forever — a local group whose mission is to educate, empower, encourage, and embrace all who are at risk for breast cancer.

The event features runway models who are local survivors of breast cancer. The evening also entails music and entertainment, as well as information about breast cancer screening opportunities and resources. Dinner will be served, along with complimentary wine. There will also be a silent auction, and you are invited to view items in advance by visiting “sites.google.com/view/breastfriendsforever”

There are a few tickets still available, each for $15. They may be purchased at Gentle Care Health Center in Mechanicsburg. Tickets will not be available at the door.
