From English tea to iced tea cocktails!! 2020 has brought a lot of changes and this year Circle of Hope’s 16th annual signature Tea fundraiser held on Saturday, October 3, 2020 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 unique and high energy “tea party” will include a delicious internationally themed dinner with 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 Senator 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 raise 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. VIP tickets also include a raffle ticket in the VIP Twilight Tea drawing and a bottle of specially paired Entourage wine to enjoy with your meal. “Having the right wine with your meal is very important”, said Rick Pratt, Wine Sponsor and master winemaker of Entourage Two Papas Wines. “I will be pairing a specially selected bottle of artfully crafted red or white boutique wine that will go perfect with each meal on the menu and I am sure each guest will enjoy.”
