"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." ~Leo Buscaglia

The tea is about "Women supporting Women" and this years theme was Friendship, Roses and Royal Tea. The funds raised on Saturday the 19th, will be given to the East Kootenay Foundation For Health in support of new equipment needed in the maternity ward of the Creston Hospital.
This was my third year participating in this annual Pink Garden Tea fundraiser (now in it's 5th year). I continue to be amazed and impressed by these tireless organizers and hosts of the Pink Garden Tea. Each year they put on a fabulous spread and go out of their way to make everyone in attendance feel extra special. For example my table had the honour of being served with the beautiful chintz teapot and china that was the inspiration for the above painting! (how thoughtful is that?!)

They are truly amazing women and each year their efforts remind me that a gesture (small or large) from each of us can make a huge difference in someones life.
This quote says it all!
Thank You once again Debbie, Susan and Cindy for a wonderful afternoon of pampering!
