Lisa Spooner, NBC2 News Today Anchor, will serve as emcee again this year at the Annual Pink Tea Party Oct. 4 at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa.
“The Pink Out Tea on Sanibel is one of the highlights of my year,” said Spooner. “Having a maternal grandmother who was a breast cancer survivor as well as several friends who have battled the unfair disease, I always try to make sure I do my part to support causes which support the brave men and women who have battled and continue to fight breast cancer.”
Tickets are available at www.PinkOutTea.com for $75, or contact the San Cap Pink Project at PinkOutSanibel@gmail.com or PO Box 125, Sanibel, FL 33957 for reservations, to contribute, or to volunteer.
“Last year’s Pink Out Tea was so impactful to me, that I can’t wait to share the experience this year with my own mom,” continued Spooner. “I can’t wait to be a part of this year’s event.”
Spooner launched her broadcasting career in Houston after earning a degree in journalism from Texas A&M. She moved to CBS Eyewitness News in Tyler, Texas and quickly advanced through levels of increasing responsibility from anchor to managing editor. Today Spooner is a well-known personality in Southwest Florida following more than eight years at NBC 2. She was the face of the 4 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts and is now the morning anchor on News Today. She started in Florida anchoring morning news for Fox 4 and moved on to lead the popular nationally syndicated show, The Daily Buzz.
“We are delighted Lisa continues to be involved,” said Mary Bondurant, founder of the San Cap Pink Project, Inc., known for more than 10 years as Let’s Pink Out. “Lisa and the NBC2 News team have a history of supporting cancer awareness month and are now beloved members of the Pink Out team. It is an honor to have them on board again for the launch event of this year’s activities.”
“Besides our signature mobile mammogram program for uninsured individuals, Pink Out will field a series of events in October,” continued Bondurant. “Coming up next, at the Sanibel Fire Station, the Pink Out Picnic is Oct. 20. At the Sundial Beach Resort & Spa courts, the Dink for Pink pickleball tournament is Oct. 27 to 29 with a round-robin October 30. The Pink-A-Boo Halloween costume party dance will cap off an exciting month on October 29 in the Sundial Beach Resort & Spa ballroom. “
All San Cap Pink Project events are designed to honor, remember, and support. Funds raised by ticket sales, contributions to the raffles and auctions, donations, and merchandise benefit uninsured and underinsured members of local communities needing help with cancer related needs.
