Our theme is to save the bees and butterflies, so look for them to featured throughout the event. Please join us for Annual Afternoon Tea, we also encourage your participation by way of a donation, sponsorship or providing a silent auction item when possible.
We expect over 120 guests virtually and 60 in-person guests each day. Guests joining us virtually can enjoy their Tea at their own leisure or with us online, with a Tea Box for one, two and four (the box for four includes a teapot and four cups and saucers). Each Tea Box will have a lace runner, Tea (choice of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Chamomile), Special gift, Savory tea items (quiche, sausage roll, tea sandwiches), Tea Cakes (lemon bar, caramel slice, tea cake, chocolate covered strawberry), individually wrapped scone with preserves/ lemon curd, and a gorgeous pose of fresh flowers, all tied with a wonderful sash.

Of course, tea service will have the full elegant display of over 8 different tea sandwiches, sausage rolls, quiche, warm, delicious, home-style scones, with raspberry preserves, lemon curd and cream, delectable dessert morsels, all served on elegant tea towers, with quaint patterns. Then you'll enjoy a full cake service (Victoria Sponge, Caramel Crème, Lemon and perhaps a Coffee Cake) all made with fresh ingredients. Amazing and fantastic Online Auction items will be on display to view.
This virtual and in-person event allows us to reach a greater audience to showcase our YWCA, and the services we provide to the community; helping women and families now and in the future!
