HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Train Depot in downtown Hattiesburg was transformed into a Downton Abbey themed tea room on Saturday during the 2nd annual "Pink Ribbon English Tea" event in honor of preventing breast cancer.

All of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Pink Ribbon Fund which provides compassionate financial assistance to Pine Belt residents for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

One breast cancer survivor weighed in on what the day meant to her.

"Every penny raised on Saturday goes to breast cancer patients, and there are numerous times the Pink Ribbon Fund has helped breast cancer patients in the past," said Carol Lindley.

Over 20 Pine Belt interior designers, florists and decorators created one-of-a-kind table-scapes, transforming the depot into a magical 1920's English Tea Room.

Forrest General's Spirit Girls were on hand to help with serving and the "Hub City String Quartet" provided background music for the event.
