Fore Her tea party fundraiser taking place May 6

Special to The Sun

Plan to join Fore Her from 1-3 p.m. May 6 at the Vue on 30a in Santa Rosa Beach for the fourth annual Tea Fore Her, an event that is the perfect opportunity to dress up, grab your best friend, and come support this local nonprofit and the women they serve in our community.

The fundraiser, presented by the Platinum Pink Sponsor Pizza by the Sea, benefits Fore Her, a local nonprofit that works to provide financial support to local women battling breast cancer.

Attendees will enjoy a light lunch, pink lemonade cocktail, amazing silent auction, the beautiful setting provided by The Vue on 30a, and a few other surprises. Tickets are $50 and $45 if a breast cancer survivor. Purchase tickets at

In addition, life coach, curator of powerful women and breast cancer survivor Teri Fedonczack will present a short program on how breast cancer is the best thing that ever happened to her.

Fore Her, which was started by Amy Walsh after her mother and aunt lost their battles with breast cancer, helps to relieve some of the financial burden associated with breast cancer by providing monetary support to local women battling the disease.

“I have spent my life fundraising to support those that are battling cancer,” Walsh said. “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.”

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.
