Graaff-Reinet Advertiser - - Voorblad -

On­ce a­gain, an ex­tre­me­ly success­ful 'Pink Tea' in aid of can­cer a­wa­re­ness was hos­ted in Graaff-rei­net.

This e­vent is held e­very Oc­to­ber by a group of la­dies cal­ling them­sel­ves the S­pan­dau Pink Tea Te­am, to rai­se a­wa­re­ness of can­cer and to sup­port tho­se af­fected by the con­di­ti­on.

The tea, which was held at the Bo­ta­ni­cs S­ports Club on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, 24 Oc­to­ber, al­lo­wed lo­cal can­cer sur­vi­vors and suf­fe­rers to en­joy tea and re­freshments with the com­mu­ni­ty of Graaff-rei­net and so­me from sur­roun­ding towns.

The guest s­pea­ker at this y­e­ar's e­vent was the highly re­pu­ta­ble mo­ti­va­ti­o­nal s­pea­ker and o­w­ner of Bro­wn’s PR com­pa­ny, Mi­chel­le Bro­wn.

She de­li­ver­ed an awe-in­spi­ring talk on the 'I­ma­ge of Wo­men', ur­ging wo­men to pro­tect their i­ma­ge and re­pu­ta­ti­on. "Wo­men should be me­ti­cu­lous re­gar­ding their ap­pea­ran­ce in pu­blic and at their work­pla­ces," said Bro­wn.

She al­so stres­sed the fact that wo­men should be ef­fi­cient ad­mi­nis­tra­tors and te­am wor­kers wit­hout sa­cri­fi­cing their in­di­vi­du­a­li­ty.

Throug­hout her ad­dress, Bro­wn cre­a­ted a vi­brant e­ner­gy and at­mos­p­he­re in the hall and e­ver­y­bo­dy spon­ta­ne­ous­ly joi­ned in the dan­cing, as re­que­sted by her, at the end of the functi­on.

Bro­wn al­so broug­ht se­ver­al va­lu­a­ble lucky draw gif­ts al­ong - Fa­w­zie Mo­ham­med won an ac­com­mo­da­ti­on pri­ze in­clu­si­ve of bre­ak­fast at the Bo­ardwalk Ho­tel in Port E­li­za­beth.

Not a sin­gle la­dy left the e­vent emp­ty­han­ded as 200 beau­ti­ful pot plants we­re ge­ne­rous­ly do­na­ted by Blue Mag­no­lia Nur­se­ry to the de­lig­ht of e­ach at­ten­dee.

The la­dies who at­ten­ded we­re al­so en­ter­tai­ned by Ar­chie Pie­naar who ren­de­red mu­sic throug­hout the e­vent. The au­dien­ce was al­so thril­led by the mu­si­cal i­tems ren­de­red by the im­ma­cu­la­te group, 'E­bo­ny & I­vo­ry and In-be­t­ween'.

The or­ga­ni­sers would li­ke to t­hank the fol­lo­wing bu­si­nes­ses in Port E­li­za­beth who con­tri­bu­ted to the success of the e­vent: The Bo­ardwalk Ho­tel and Con­ven­ti­on Cen­t­re, Win­de­me­re Ho­tel, To­wn Lod­ge, Ci­ty Lod­ge, Cour­ty­ard Ho­tel and Cad­bu­ry.

A word of thanks is al­so ex­ten­ded to all the gue­sts for their do­na­ti­ons ma­de, the do­nors, spon­sors and the lo­cal bu­si­nes­ses for their ge­ne­rous con­tri­bu­ti­ons ma­de to­wards the functi­on.

All the mo­ney rai­sed by way of this e­vent is in aid of the Graaff-rei­net Can­cer As­so­ci­a­ti­on.

The ‘Pink Tea’ in aid of can­cer a­wa­re­ness was well at­ten­ded.

Mo­re pho­tos at www.graaff­rei­ne­t­ad­ver­ti­ ‘E­bo­ny & I­vo­ry and In-be­t­ween’ en­ter­tai­ned the gue­sts at the re­cent ‘Pink Tea’ in Graaff-rei­net.

The guest s­pea­ker was the highly re­pu­ta­ble mo­ti­va­ti­o­nal s­pea­ker and o­w­ner of Bro­wn’s PR com­pa­ny, Mi­chel­le Bro­wn.
