The ambiance will be enhanced by solo violinist Jordan Pettis, performing classic R&B selections. Guests will also enjoy charcuterie and crudités, compliments of Fascinators & Tea.

Following the Welcome Cocktail, attendees will then be seated for a refined tea service catered by Tea with the Duchess and a tea etiquette lesson.

Later in the afternoon, the event will feature the “Fanciest Fascinator Contest,” celebrating the most fashionable fascinators worn by guests.

To conclude the event, guests and supporters can participate in an official raffle for a chance to win an exquisite Tea Basket valued at $125.
