Enjoy a cup of tea, or two, for charity

An upcoming ladies night fundraiser will involve having a cup or two of tea for charity. The ones doing the pouring will be male servers in dress pants and a bow tie, and not much else.

Sebastien Poulin and Rebecca Ranger are putting on the Steeped Tea Independent Consultant Ladies Night for ChariTea. Ranger is an independent Steeped Tea consultant.

Steeped Tea is a loose leaf tea company.

“It’s a home-based business, so you sell to your friends and things like that,” he said. “But they are pretty big on fundraisers and stuff like that. So they allow us to do fundraisers for the causes we want, so we chose to do one for the SPCA and for the food bank.”

So they are organizing a huge ladies’ night tea party at the Heritage Inn on Nov. 22 at 7 p.m. The Heritage has donated the ballroom for the event.

“I’m going to have a few of my buddies, bodybuilders from the gym, and they’re going to be serving tea for the ladies — it’s a ladies’ night tea party,” he said.

The servers will be dressed in dress shoes, dress pants and bow tie.

“So it’s going to be sexy servers kind of deal with tea as a fundraiser,” he said.

There will also be coffee for those who would rather drink that, as well as cookies. Wine will also be available for purchase from the Heritage.

“We’re donating 100 per cent of the proceeds to the SPCA,” he said. “And also we’re donating 100 per cent of our commissions.”

Admission to the event is free, but they ask that you bring a food bank donation for entrance.

“So we’re going to give a bunch of food to the food bank and a bunch of money to the SPCA,” he said.

Poulin said he thought it would be an original idea to have the tea party.

If it goes well, he said it could become a yearly event.

Space is limited, so contact Rebecca by email here or by phone at 250-417-7720.
