This beautiful event is a highly sought-after opportunity to enjoy an authentic high tea, around elegantly decorated tables. To attend you must be a sponsor, a host or the guest of a host. This year’s event will be held inside, on April 27th at the Ocala UF Extension Auditorium.
Interfaith invites you to raise a cup and make a difference as a Host for our High Tea Benefit! Become a champion for our Homeless Shelter Program (serving homeless women, children and families), by hosting a table or through sponsorship. There’s no fee to host, but tables are limited!
New changes this year!
We are welcoming men to join us as table hosts, as we’ve had many requests for this to be an inclusive event.
We’re inside - We’ve moved inside the Ocala UF Extension Auditorium We’ll have plenty of space and it will seem like we’re outdoors with the spacious windows and garden panoramas featured on all the surrounding screens.
We’ve also increased the length of the event, so everyone will have a chance to relax and catch up with friends among the beautifully decorated tables.
Tables will 72” rounds that will fit up to 10 ladies.
Be a Host and Help Your Community
Gather up to 9 of your friends, unleash your inner decorators, and create a beautifully themed table.
We provide the tables, chairs, food and dessert, along with a complete ‘how to’ guide with more details.
A meet and greet event will be held March 20th for all the Hosts to go over the event and ask any questions.
There’s a Happy Hour Party the evening before (4/26) from 5pm – 7:30pm so that tables can be set up in advance.
