It will soon be teatime at the Avon Valley Golf and Country Club in Falmouth.
Kings County residents Margo Corkum and Paula Huntley will be hosting their fourth annual Spring Tea Social at the club from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 29.
“It’s a beautiful spot,” says Corkum.
Guests will be treated to an assortment of beverages, sweets and sandwiches, and invited to bid on a wide variety of silent auction items.
Huntley, a freelance writer with an eye for design, will be happy to answer any home décor questions attendees may have. Corkum says guests are invited to bring photos to share their “design dilemmas” with Huntley.
More than 200 people attended the tea last year.
“It’s just a nice way to spend a day out with the girls,” says Corkum.
Attendees will have the added satisfaction of knowing the event will benefit three charities — the Matthew 25 Windsor and District Food Bank, Friends of Ferals and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Corkum says the duo draws on their design expertise to host annual fundraisers for organizations dear to their hearts.
“We see that there is so many people out there that are working so hard and it’s a struggleto viefor that same dollar because there are so many deserving groups,” she said.
“This is just one way that we can help them out.”
The cost of admission to the spring tea is $10. Guests are encouraged to bring food bank donations to the event. Tickets can be purchased by calling Corkum (902-679-9770) or Huntley (902-678-6692), or bought at the door.
