Many thanks to Judy Borlase, the Committee on Homeless Women, and the Local Scholarship committee for planning and executing this fabulous event!
Take a look at some photos from the English Tea! Thanks to Louise Quenon for the photography.
Note:, if I missed a name or got one wrong, please send me email . I’ll fix up the formatting and add the rest of the photos as I get time, but thought you would all like to see these! Laurie

Don’t these pictures make you hungry all over again?
The Table Centerpieces
Here are just a few of the lovely centerpieces. There were little bunnies made from washcloths on each table with the arrangement!
The entertainment was the “Fourmatas” group (did I spell that right? I’m guessing it’s a play on the musical term) from the Sweet Adelines. They serenaded us with
- Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy
- When I Fall in Love
- Ain’t He Sweet!
And here’s a link to the Mission Valley Chorus website, just in case you would like to sing! We’re all invited.
The live auction was very exciting. Cynthia Miller was our auctioneer.
- Claire Campodonico purchased the weekend in Santa Cruz.
- Lydia Montano got the condo in the wine country.
- We also auctioned off an evening with the Saratoga firefighters.
Many business donated items for the Silent Auction. Be sure and thank them!
Shots of the Room
Just a few photos of the room and the lovely table settings!

The formatting in this section is a bit odd – I’ll try and fix it, but wanted to share the photos anyway. Laurie
* Just a note about Sumi Tanabe’s friend, Lillian Kanzaki, in the picture above: Lillian has supported the English Tea for over 16 years, participating by purchasing many of our silent auction items. This year, she also donated 4 bottles of wine for the auction!
