2023 Ladies High Tea

This beautiful event is a highly sought opportunity for 240 ladies to enjoy an authentic high tea, around elegantly decorated tables. To attend you must be a sponsor, hostess or the guest of a hostess. This year’s event will be held April 22nd at the beautiful Licciardello Farm in Summerfield.

The purpose of this event is to raise support for the Interfaith Homeless Shelter which serves homeless women, children and families.  We also celebrate the strength, passion and the will that make women unique!  Our ultimate goal is to inspire woman leaders in our community to get involved in the solution to make Marion County a better place to live for all women.

We are currently seeking hostesses and sponsors

for our 7th Annual Ladies High Tea.

We are inviting ladies to be a hostess for High Tea with 7 of their friends and/or family. Tables can be decorated from simple to elaborately themed!  Hostesses will be encouraged to use the event to raise funds for our Homeless Shelter Program – recruiting other ladies to join them in celebrating the strength of women coming together for a common cause. Each table is challenged to raise a minimum of $500, with a goal of $1,000 or more.  The table that raises the most funds will win the traveling Golden Teapot Award!


And there’s more… we’re giving away a second award this year. The first goes to whoever raises the most money for Interfaith with donations, who will receive the Golden Tea Pot of honor and a special gift basket.  The second award is the “People Choice Award”  for best decorated table!
