The Southwest Florida community is invited to tea from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4 at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa on Sanibel, supporting local cancer needs. The Annual Pink Tea Party is hosted this year by the San Cap Pink Project, Inc., known for over 10 years on the islands as Let’s Pink Out.

“We’re pleased to partner with the Pink Project to raise funds to assist island residents affected by cancer,” said Becky Miller, Sundial Beach Resort & Spa General Manager. “Last year’s high tea was such a great celebration, involving the entire community. This year’s event is shaping up to be equally exciting and supportive of the cause.”

“We hope everyone attending has a wonderful time and gets an opportunity to simply enjoy celebrating, honoring, and supporting. Sundial’s location provides such beautiful views, and planning is underway to host an equally beautiful event,” said San Cap Pink Project Founder Mary Bondurant.

Attendees will enjoy a full high tea, including tea sandwiches, petit fours, and scones. Paul Rozmus, flutist from Renata Band, will be provide background music with his signature combination of jazz, pop, blues, and soul. Designer centerpieces, first class photography, plenty of pink bubbly, and a lively raffle are in the planning stages.

The Annual Pink Tea Party is the first of a series of San Cap Pink Project cancer awareness month activities to raise consciousness and funds for those fighting cancer. The tea kicks off a month of festivities designed to provide support, remembrance, and fundraising for the community. Funds raised by ticket sales, contributions to the raffle and auction, donations, and merchandise sales benefit uninsured and underinsured members of the Sanibel and Captiva communities needing mammograms or help with other cancer related needs.

Individual tickets are on sale at for $75 or contact us at the San Cap Pink Project, P.O. Box 125 Sanibel, Florida 33957 or at for tickets, to contribute, or to volunteer.
