The 19th annual Tea for Two Hundred garden party gala benefit will be held on Saturday, August 13, 2016, from 4:00 to 7:00pm in the beautiful gardens of the Washington Depot home of Mr. Gael Hammer and Mr. Gary Goodwin.
The tea, attracting people from all over New England, is widely considered Litchfield County’s social event of the summer season. This year the Tea for Two Hundred will be honoring Washington resident George Schoellkopf and the Hollister House Garden. Guests will be able to dance in the garden to the music of the legendary “Beehive Queen” Christine Ohlman, shop the fabled and eclectic Silent Auction, and enter the dazzling Crazy Hat contest. The dress code is traditional white or creative vintage.
The proceeds of the Tea for Two Hundred will benefit two local nonprofit organizations; The Gunn Historical Museum of Washington, well known throughout the State of Connecticut for its excellent award winning exhibitions, and the Interfaith AIDS Ministry of Greater Danbury (IAM) a nonprofit agency offering unconditional critical support services to families facing the nutritional and physical challenges of living with HIV/AIDS.
