Creston’s Pink Garden Tea donates to East Kootenay Foundation for Health campaign

Web Lead

The East Kootenay Foundation for Health recently received a donation of $643 from Debbie Graham, event co-ordinator of the Pink Garden Tea, for the A Clear View digital mammography campaign.

Graham has been organizing the event over the past three years to help support breast cancer patients living in the Creston area. This year, she and her committee decided to expand the event to two days, and to direct their funds to A Clear View.

Her home garden was transformed into a welcome retreat for tea lovers and featured an array of teas from New York, crepes and fruit skewers, plus a chance to shop at the tea market boutique for a variety of items such as teas, books, angels and hand creams.

Also showing their support were a quilt presentation by cancer survivor Carmen Lancaster, sales of a special edition watercolour teacup giclée by Creston artist Laura Leeder, and book signing and sales by author Valerie Comer.
