Fourth Annual Tea for Teal Event to Honor Ovarian Cancer Crusaders; Late Founder

Phoenix, AZ, June 21, 2012 --( The Anne Rita Monahan (ARM) Foundation is hosting the 4th annual Tea for Teal, a high English afternoon tea, to fund ovarian cancer research taking place at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen). Tea for Teal is on Sept. 29, 2012 and will be at the Doubletree Paradise Valley Resort.

This year, ARM is looking to nominate an outstanding ovarian cancer crusader at Tea for Teal. The 2012 Anne Rita Monahan Crusader Award will recognize a cancer crusader who has made contributions for cancer awareness and has displayed determination and perseverance in their journey. In order to win, the nominee must be present at Tea for Teal on Saturday, Sept. 29 but does not have to be a person with ovarian cancer. The award can go to a relative or friend who has a special journey or experience and that continues to be a crusader for ovarian cancer.

Tea for Teal is a part of the ARM Foundation’s efforts to raise $100,000 for ovarian cancer research. The funds will be used to research early-stage, drug-resistant, ovarian cancer.

Just as pink is the color representing the fight against breast cancer, teal is the color that represents the fight against ovarian cancer, the horrific disease that claimed the life of the group’s heroic founder, Anne Rita Monahan, on May 13, 2009 after a nearly 20-year battle with the disease.
