The Fort Harrison Welcomes Guests to Afternoon Tea for the Outdoor Arts Foundation, November 11th
The community is invited to attend a charity tea party for the Outdoor Arts Foundation at the Fort Harrison on Sunday, November 11th . In addition to a traditional three-course tea, the event includes live entertainment and prize drawings.
There is no cost to attend, but guests are encouraged to make a donation for the Foundation, which is a 501C3 charity. The Foundation has been active on public arts projects in the area since 2000, when it produced the “Tampa Bay Tour of Turtles.” The Foundation most recently exhibited decorated fiberglass Elephants around town as part of its “Herd About Tampa Bay” project during the Republican National Convention.
Some of the area’s finest establishments have donated prizes for drawings at the event, including the Renaissance Vinoy in St. Petersburg and Charley’s Steakhouse. All guests will have the opportunity to have their photos taken at an old-time photo booth before the show.
Doors open to the Fort Harrison Auditorium at 1:30 and tea, including scones, sandwiches and pastries, will be served at 2. The menu was designed by the Gold-medal winning chefs at the Fort Harrison. Coffee and soft drinks will also be served.
The presentation of the “Tinhorn’s Daughter” will begin at three. The story is a western romance, written by Hubbard in the 30’s, and is the tale of Betsy Trotwood, recently arrived from the East to the Wild West to find that her father is not the gallant rancher she thought he was. Complicating matters is that she starts to fall in love with Sunset Maloney, the bandit who is determined to ruin her father.
Anyone wishing to attend the event must RSVP to 747-467-6860 by Wednesday, November 7th.
