Carolyn's Pennies Teal Tea

Carolyn Shandrowski is one of Kansas City’s local heroes.  Carolyn, a fourteen year, two-time survivor of ovarian cancer had a vision 8 years ago.
Carolyn’s vision was to help provide support to other women currently undergoing medical treatments for ovarian cancer.  Having personally experienced this twice she realized there were so many ways – often small ways that provided comfort and care to a woman.
Carolyn and her husband Russ founded Carolyn’s Pennies.  Their goal was to raise one million pennies and Carolyn’s Pennies did just that…surpassing this target in the very first first year!

The signature fundraising event for Carolyn’s Pennies is The Teal Tea.  Bringing together ovarian cancer survivors, families, and friends this special event raises money to help provide support to current ovarian cancer patients.  Guests enjoy an elegant afternoon tea, silent auctions raffles, and local talent. And guest’s take home a tasty tea party favor…

Carolyn and Russ also give each of their Teal Tea guests a party favor to take home.  A little package that includes two bags of Carolyn’s Pennies Tea – Anna Tea Shop’s Cinnamon Almond Tea. A smooth black tea with just the right amount of cinnamon, apple bits and almonds.

This year’s Teal Tea will be held on May 1, 2016 at The View at Briarcliff.  1-3:30PM.  Tickets are still available or pay at the door.

Carolyn’s Pennies has raised over ninety thousand dollars to support its mission.  This money goes directly to women currently fighting against this silent killer.  Providing them support, information, and assistance.
