Friends and neighbors in the Liberty Park community gathered together on Friday, Sept. 28 to raise awareness for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. The Teal There’s a Cure benefit dinner also honored Peppi Talley and was in memory of Elliot Williams.
Each year, Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month is observed throughout September with parties, dinners, races and other events. Teal, the color of ovarian cancer awareness, is used with the aim to increase understanding about the deadly disease and to help women recognize the signs and symptoms.
The event was held at the home of Monica and Kim Vinoski in Liberty Park.
Through the event, the community raised more than $10,000 for the Bruno Cancer Center at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Birmingham.
The neighborhood event featured food catered by V. Richards and beverages donated by Birmingham Budweiser, Avondale Brewery and Piggly Wiggly.
Guests were entertained with live music by Kevin Harrison.
About 300 people attended the Teal There’s a Cure benefit dinner. Guests included John and Lisa O’Neil, Jeff Creel, Dane Prewitt, Zach Friloux, Chris Williams, Monica Vinoski, Kim Vinoski, Shannon Banta, Amy Wilson, Rhonda Hardwick, Kelly Greiner, Peppi Talley, Shonda Prewitt, Kayra Creel, Lori Friloux and Bently Hess.
