SIREN HOLIDAY TEA
Begining in 2016 GFWC took over the organizaiton of the annual SIREN Tea. The Tea, is a holiday tea, held in November of every year that raises money for both the SIREN/Eaton Shelter and GFWC-Charlotte. The Tea began in 2007. SIREN/Eaton Shelter is our local Domestic Violence and Homeless Shelter, a non-profit agency that assists with emergency and transitional shelter, support services, and a 24-hour crisis line to families in Eaton County. Support at the Holiday Tea comes in the form of purchasing a table for eighty dollars and decorating it for the annual event. A luncheon is served. Prizes are awarded in different categories: Most elegant, seasonal/holiday, most unique, traditional, people’s choice and best of show. The event also features a silent auctionr of items donated by club members. To date over $77,000 has been raised to help SIREN/Eaton Shelter from the Holiday Tea!
