The High Tea fundraiser for the DayBreak Center last Sunday was an extraordinary event with a sold-out crowd.
Betty Overland played piano as the guests arrived while Sandy Jamieson, Darleen Coon and the volunteers served up a British feast served with beautiful china tea cups and saucers. Mary Faux gave a rousing show of (a small part of) her hat collection with an uncanny sense of intuition for matching the right hat for each recipient. Safeway and Walmart donated food and organizers paid for the rest of the food so all of the $1,555 raised went directly for helping participants at the DayBreak Center, Sandpoint Area Seniors’ daytime care center for families dealing with Alzheimer’s and memory loss.
Thank you to our awesome volunteers: Sandy Jamieson, co-coordinator; Darlene Coon, co-coordinator; Joan Butcher; Barda Cameron; Gladys Englen; Mary Faux; Michelle Harcourt; Nancy Katona; Linda Melia; Loris Michael and Betty Overland.
