Fourth Annual Tea Fore Her Fundraiser May 6
April 16, 2018 by SoWal Staff
Please join us and Fore Her on May 6 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Vue on 30a for the fourth annual Tea Fore Her, a perfect opportunity to dress up, grab your best friend, and come support our local nonprofit and the women they serve in our community.
Fore Her helps local breast cancer patients one golf game at a time. The organization raises funds through their signature annual event, the Fore Her Golf Outing, to provide financial assistance for breast cancer patients and their families. The women have the freedom to use the money however they see fit and can choose to remain anonymous. No strings attached.
Amy Walsh founded Fore Her in Santa Rosa Beach in honor of her mother who lost her battle to cancer. Fore Her aims to fill the gap in our community for women who do not have family or the resources to have people raise money for them during their time of need.
Attendees to Tea Fore Her will enjoy a light lunch, delicious pink lemonade cocktail, amazing silent auction, the beautiful setting provided by The Vue on 30a, and a few other surprises. In addition, a short program by life coach, curator of powerful women and breast cancer survivor Teri Fedonczack, on “how breast cancer is the best thing that ever happened to her”.
“I have spent my life fundraising to support those that are battling cancer. My family started a golf tournament in Michigan to benefit breast cancer patients and honor my mother and aunt in 2000. Living in Florida, I decided I wanted to start an organization, in my community, to support local women!” said Walsh.
Fore Her’s main goal in 2018 is to enhance fundraisers and share their mission so that they can continue helping women, between Escambia and Bay counties, battling breast cancer. Funds raised at this event will be used by Fore Her to provide women battling breast cancer financial assistance to help pay their mortgage, car, utilities, medical expenses, a well deserved vacation after recovering from treatments, or a last vacation with their families.
Tickets to attend Tea Fore Her are 50 dollars per person-- 45 dollars if you are a breast cancer survivor-- and can be purchased online at http://www.foreher.org/teaforeher.html.
