The Tea to Help Teens Fundraiser is celebrating it’s 14th year. It is a 1 day event that features a Holiday Shopping Market, a Silent Auction, musical entertainment and a delicious lunch served with tea, coffee and home-baked goodies. From its inauguration in 2004, the Tea has raised close to $200,000. This year a portion of the funds raised will also support Jr. League programming aimed at youth mental health and self esteem. The Tea, while a “west end” event is supported by the League members, small businesses, individual donors and neighbouring communities alike.
In a day, it exemplifies what the Jr. League is all about, keeping true to our mission statement and fulfilling our responsibility as a charitable organization.
