Attendees are encouraged to wear their favorite tea party hat Chair of the Grande Dames Tea is Cheryl Komnick, with Deanna Hansen serving as co-chair. Both women also are members of the PACE Lee Board of Directors. The Grande Dames Tea was originated by PACE Center for Girls of Lee County to honor women who have played major roles in Southwest Florida history through decades of service, philanthropy and helping others. The agenda for the tea will include interaction between the PACE girls and the three Grande Dames, in a question and answer format that Komnick and Hansen said “is sure to be thought-provoking and poignant.” PACE Center for Girls, Inc., is a non-residential program targeting the unique needs of girls, ages 12 to 18 years old, facing challenges such as physical and sexual abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse, foster care, neglect, death of a parent, family history of incarceration and declining grades.
