Families are expected to gather together for the festive showcase, which will be festooned with floral arrangements, whimsical centerpieces and classic place settings.

Lorna Welshman-Neblett, president said, “As you have all experienced, we have been in this pandemic lock down for more than a year now and H.E.R.O.C. has not been able to host any of our four fund raiser events for the year 2020.”

She added, that H.E.R.O.C. in collaboration with our sister organization, “The Giving Hope Foundation” in Guyana also were not able to host our annual Cancer Mission for our thrivers and survivors in Guyana either.

“However in lieu of the mission, we were able to provide gift bags for 100 persons that included all the items such as masks, gloves, hand sanitizers, hand wash/soap, wet wipes along with a few other much needed items,” she said

She added that this virtual Tea Party “will assist us in continuing the efforts and work in Guyana with our cancer survivors and thrivers.”
