Chosen to Conquer Holds Ladies Tea

By   /   September 11, 2011  /   Comments

Special to the Journal

The nonprofit organization Chosen to Conquer Inc. sponsored its second annual southern Tea, a First Ladies Affair, on Aug. 16 at the Ocala House in Leesburg.

Ladies of the community were invited to attend and experience the elegance and sophistication of a Southern tea. The Tea’s primary purpose was exposure to Chosen to Conquer and its primary agenda for serving people diagnosed with heart ailments, breast cancer and multiple sclerosis.

The old-style veranda of the Ocala House was beautifully decorated in Chosen to Conquer colors of orange, red and pink, and members profiled and styled these colors, as well, in lovely sundresses, hats and gloves. The interior decorations were exquisitely done by Carolyn Brannon using the same palette of colors.

Judy Randle, owner of Central Monitoring and Chairman of the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce, gave an emotional yet motivating speech that inspired all in attendance.

The men of Omega Psi Phi provided valet and escort services for the ladies attending the elegant affairs.
