Welllll WE DID IT!!!!! Team Teacup helped to SAVE THE PINK TEACUP!!!
We had a wonderful event last night with turnout from loyal patrons that put tears in everyone’s eyes. Former owner Lisa Ford graciously introduced new owners Lawrence Page and Vincent Pinkney to everyone. The moment was a tear jerker. Then when Vincent invited all of the Pink Teacup staff to come on stage, we all had to pass a box of Kleenex. We even had faithful Teacupper Alyson Williams stop by to give her warm blessings and sing us a tune.
Between, the passed hors d'oeuvres of collard greens, mac & cheese and fried wings and the grooves spun by DJ Tara, we could not contain ourselves. It was such an old school, SOULFUL good time!
Just last night we raised over $2,000!!! We anticipate a few thousands more once we close donations via Paypal next week. We are so very grateful to Lawrence Page for stepping up to the plate to answer the call to action we placed almost a month ago. Our efforts and your support are proof that small businesses have a solid place in this economy and help to make NYC what it really is!
Thank you to all of our donors, supporters, family and friends for supporting us in our efforts. Please check out Rachel Barrett Photography from the Fundraiser Celebration! Click: The Pink Teacup.
