Santa Clarita, Ca. – Circle of Hope has announced their 16th annual signature Tea fundraiser held on Saturday, October 3, 2020 that will feature something new and different with an internationally themed dinner and program. Traditionally a daytime English Tea brunch, this year’s event will be offered as a semi virtual Twilight Evening Tea with dinner, iced tea cocktails, music, and entertainment, all with an innovative international flair.
This year’s theme will focus on peace and unity with the theme “It’s a Small World”. “I’m so excited for this year’s theme”, said one of this year’s event co-chairs, Rebecca DeLuca. “We have created an evening that is unique, diverse and filled with fun and joy while bringing our community together to support a great cause and organization”. This unique and high energy “tea party” will include a delicious internationally themed dinner and dessert, iced tea cocktails, and gift bags for all attendees that will be picked up curbside from Marston’s Restaurant. The evening will also include an exciting interactive program that includes guest speakers, cancer survivor Vanessa Wilk and her husband Scott Wilk, music, international dancing and entertainment, a fabulous on-line silent auction and more. Whether you hold the party in your home with family or together with a few friends on a socially distanced outdoor patio, your support will ensure that those with cancer in our community will receive the help they need to fight their battle with cancer. “This year more than any other has been especially challenging for fundraising, but we will continue to find ways to have the funds we need to help those with cancer in our community”, stated Laura Kirchhoff, Executive Director. “The Twilight Tea will help do just that.”
All tickets include your choice of dinner from an international themed menu served by Marston’s Restaurant, dessert and a Twilight Tea gift bag filled with fun and unique items including an assortment of iced tea cocktails with fresh ingredients to pair with your international feast, a beautiful iced tea glass, and an assortment of special gifts.
