Jane Gardner to speak at Temple Emanuel’s 7th Annual Pink Tea

Sunday, May 6, 2–4 pm

Jane Gardner, survivor of four types of cancer, a former TV anchor, and a former health reporter, will be the guest speaker for this year’s 7th Annual Pink Tea. Hosted by Temple Emanuel, the event continues the legacy of its founder, Renee Heyman (of blessed memory). In 2012, Heyman envisioned helping the underserved women in the community and began her quest to raise funds for cancer screenings and mammograms for the local Beach Health Clinic.

Since that first year, the Pink Tea, through its supporters and a lot of hard work, has donated more than $12,000 to the Beach Health Clinic. Since it is “Derby Day,” this year’s theme is “Race for the Care.” Everyone is encouraged to wear a crazy hat for the “Derby.” The Tea will offer (alcohol-free) pink mimosas, pink champagne, pink lemonade, strawberry and pink desserts, pecan pie, and other wonderful Southern delights prepared by the Beth Sholom Village Caterers. Decorations will again be creatively and beautifully arranged by Leslie Siegel.

Admission is a minimum of $12.50; donors of $25 and above receive a “Pink Angel” ribbon and recognition. Speakers will share informative, interesting, and personal stories. RSVP by Wednesday, April 25. Call the Temple Emanuel’s office, 757-428-2591 or office@tevb.org or Paula Krukin Levy, 757-467-6677.
