Information on the Pink Ribbon Tea
The Junior League of Youngstown Pink Ribbon Tea was started by Susan Berny and Annette Camacci. Susan Berny requested a grant from the League and worked with the Susan G. Komen Foundation back in 1994. The first tea had fifty survivors in attendance.
Through the two decades since the tea began, it has provided an afternoon of support. It is an inspiration and celebration of the survivors’ many successes in their fight against breast cancer. Survivors attend for free as the event is supported by underwriters, sponsors and Junior League members. In its twenty-three history the tea has had more than 6,700 participants.
The 2017 Pink Ribbon Tea will be held on Monday, August 21, 2017 at Stambaugh Auditorium located at 1000 Fifth Avenue in Youngstown. Doors open at 11:00 AM and program luncheon will begin at 12:00 pm. Seating is limited!
Please send your RSVP to the Junior League office by Monday, August 7, 2017. There is a $20.00 charge for each guest of a survivor. A gift basket raffle and goody bags will be available. If you are a breast cancer survivor and would like an invitation, you may call the Junior League of Youngstown office at 330-743-3200.
