On Saturday

Tea time in Campbell River

Campbell River is invited for tea! On Saturday, Oct 15, the two local dragon boat teams, Bravehearts and River Spirit, will join together to serve the community at the annual Pink Ribbon Tea. Home baking and tea will be available from 11-2 pm at the Dragonboat Clubhouse in the Commons.

Donations are requested for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation/BC Yukon region, and all proceeds go to that organization for education and research.

The tea parties were originally inspired by one family, touched by breast cancer, who wanted to participate in an event with friends and community members that was primarily social, like a tea party. Now an annual event since 2014, Pink Ribbon Teas are held across the region by individuals and organizations, and over $30,000 has been raised in the last two years. This year will be the third time the two dragon boat teams have joined together to organize the event.
