Originally a British Tradition, "tea" is a meal and "going to tea" is a social event involving sandwiches, scones, fabulous desserts, hot tea and great conversation. Wearing a "tea hat" is highly recommended.
This year's Tea for Titania will be held from on Sunday, November 3 from 2-5 pm.
Each year we sell out of tickets for the 200 seats in a fabulous ballroom, so click below to follow us on Facebook (Yes.We're on Instagram and Twitter too!)
Tables at the John P. Eliopulos Hellenic Center Ballroom seat 10 and are assigned seats, so that you can sit with your company or friends. The cost is $40 per person.
Your tickets buys tea sandwiches, scones, a dessert tray and hot or iced tea. Event t-shirts, holiday ornaments and cards are for sale at the event. Net proceeds go to CHLA's Amerman Dog Therapy Program, part of Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Almost all of our proceeds come from silent auction bids on generously donated baskets, and private and local corporate cash donations. Last year we raised $10,000. In the past 3 years, we have raised $33,000.
We have tables of silent auction items, great food, a hat booth, a photo booth, musical entertainment and an opportunity to meet handlers and dogs from CHLA's Dog Therapy Program.
Volunteers at the event are mostly friends of Tory Kane, our inspiration for this event. Last year, we were thrilled to include among our volunteers, students from the Highland High School Key Club.
