Victorian High Tea Planned for April 26

A Victorian High Tea is being planned by local residents looking to combine a fun afternoon and support a worthy cause at the same time. Proceeds from the event will be given to the Community Services of Starke County’s food pantry.

The event will be held at the Knox Community Center on Thursday, April 26th, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. A brunch will be provided by Christo’s Family Dining and served by local celebrities. A silent auction will be held, along with other entertainment, elegant decorations, drawings, and a free gift for all attendees. All tickets must be purchased in advance as no tickets will be sold at the door.

Tickets can be purchased at Christo’s Family Dining on U.S. 35 in Knox, or at Community Services of Starke County, located at 311 E. Culver Road in Knox. Tickets cost $10.

Over 200 people are expected to be at the event, and participants are encouraged to dress in Victorian-style wear or just bring a camera to take pictures of those dressed for the era. For more information, call Chris Noonan at (574) 772-0570, or Joan Haugh at (574) 772-7070.
