Holiday Tea at The Ritz
It's not the night before Christmas, nor is it in a house. It's a holiday tea at The Ritz-Carlton, one you'll love no doubt. We'll sip tip and mingle cheerfully, it's the merry thing to do. Then we'll watch a fashion preview, which will include vintage looks too. But, what we'll enjoy most is gathering in delight, to help a family in need have a holiday that's bright. So come one and come all, to share in the joy. Bring your merriment, festive style, and also a toy.

ABOUT THE FAMILY:
Felicia, wife and mother of the family we are sponsoring, was a fashion student at Collins College when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She overcame this illness with surgeries and chemo therapy, while continuing in school. Recently, the family has also been devastated by a fire. Thankfully, none of the family were physically harmed, but Felicia, her husband and their three children lost all of their possessions, escaping the fire with only what they had on their backs. In light of this loss, the family are in need of everything to start to rebuild their lives from household goods to clothing, food, fashion design tools ad supplies and even toys for the children.
Cash donations are preferred so that the family can purchase items that they need. In addition, please feel free to bring new items, gift cards from Target, and even toys. If you have specific questions, please contact Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy Holidays!
