Children’s Foundation of America hosts royal tea fundraiser
The Children’s Foundation of America held their second annual ChariTea Fundraiser on Saturday, May 6 at the Garner House in Claremont. The event, presented by Claremont Lincoln University, raises funds and awareness during National Foster Care Month.
Each year, the Claremont-based organization helps over 3,000 children affected by abuse, neglect and trauma at more than 20 local children’s agencies. With the support of participants at fundraising events and the volunteer program, the foundation is able to supply care packages, scholarships, art therapy supplies and program funding so that children in need may live productive, healthy lives. At this year’s event, the Children’s Foundation of America awarded grants to St. Anne’s Family Services and the Claremont Lewis Museum of Art Project ARTstART.
The royal-themed tea party held on King Charles III’s coronation day, featured scrumptious treats from local bakeries including Crème, Some Crust, I Like Pie, Corky’s Kitchen, Pretty N’ Baked, and Crumbl Cookies, while iced coffee and tea was served by Tough Love Roasters. The ChariTea has become a popular charity event selling out each year; this time, a whole month ahead of the festivities.
