Pink Ribbon picks honorary chair

WARREN – Caryn Covelli was named honorary chair of the Pink Ribbon Tea which was created 20 years ago by members of the Junior League of Youngstown.

The group is committed to supporting women undergoing treatment for breast cancer.

“This event is much needed for women and for our community. The Pink Ribbon Tea promises to be an uplifting celebration of women’s lives,” Covelli said.

Covelli is a past member of the Junior League of Youngstown, and has been involved with many community groups. She will attend the 20th anniversary celebration of the Junior League of Youngstown’s Pink Ribbon Tea at noon Aug. 25 at Stambaugh Auditorium Ballroom.

In addition to inviting breast cancer survivors to attend at no cost, the PRT provides education, fellowship and inspiration to women who are undergoing treatment or those who have been recently diagnosed.

Lily Johnson, a former educator also from Warren, will deliver the invocation.

“These ladies provided hope and outreach to women 20 years ago through their advocacy and support of breast cancer victims. Their leadership and vision will be celebrated,” said Kelly Kiraly, president of the Junior League of Youngstown.

The event is held one day after the Panerathon on Aug. 24, which also raises awareness of breast cancer.

To receive an invitation, call 330-743-3200 or email by Friday.
