287 people attended, which included a champagne reception, vendors, entertainment and the traditional tea, sandwiches, scones and sweets.

“The scones and food served by Here’s Howe were exceptional,” said Jeanne Stamant, event organizer.

Ten gentlemen served the guests champagne upon arrival or sold raffle tickets or photographed the event. Tom Palmeshan played Christmas music on the piano and Bob Lyons gave a Jamaican style to Christmas music on his steel drums. Donors of gifts made it possible for us to offer 4 valuable silent auction items and 28 lucky ladies won raffle prizes; 14 others won door prizes. Three vendors sold gifts, floral arrangements, jewelry or crafts and each donated a percentage of their sales to the charity. “The ballroom always looks so festive at this event” said one St John’s staff member.

Thank you to the committee, volunteers, and St John’s staff for helping to make this one of the most successful Tea’s yet.
