The Mad Hatter’s Tea will take place on October 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Those who come should wear a creatively decorated “pink” hat for contest judging and some fun. This community event will include refreshments, educational booths, music, raffles, prizes, chair massage and the chance to socialize. The event will be held at the Broward Health Coral Springs Museum of Art at 2855 Coral Springs Drive.
The Fitness for Breast Cancers Survivors will take place every Monday at 11:30 a.m. This is a free class which is open to cancer survivors to increase freedom of movement after breast surgery.
