Ali's Alliance, the nation's only comprehensive, searchable online database of cancer resources and support for patients and caregivers impacted by cancers, is planning its 2014 Haute Couture Floral Millinery Pageant fundraiser, "Top Hats & Tea Cups."

Kelly Seitz and Chris Collins are event co-chairs, with David Cowan and Todd Johnson as honorary chairs. "Top Hats & Tea Cups" takes place from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. April 27 at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens.

Cowan founded and serves as president of the nonprofit, named in honor of his late wife, Alison Arnesen Cowan, who died of cancer. Johnson lost his mother to the disease and chose Ali's Alliance as his charity of choice.

Seitz, active in theater, public speaking and broadcasting since childhood, began her event-management career in the music industry producing concerts for top touring acts before venturing into hospitality management and finally branching out on her own. She is a breast-cancer survivor. She and Collins have added special elements to the event this year, notably, expanding beyond a female-centric event and allowing men to grace the stage in fashionable top hats.

The event will feature 15 cancer survivors, along with their medical providers, modeling creations designed by top florists throughout Palm Beach County. Along with the pageant will be silent auction, a raffle and a three-course tea pairing.

Tickets cost $60 for adults and $50 for children. For information, call 561-315-5477.
