High Tea event benefits various charities in Pickens County

A proper High Tea is Friends’ of Heart and Souls way of dressing up, sipping tea with milk or lemon and laughing through it all while raising money for Pickens County charities.

“We love to eat and laugh at Holy Family,” one hat bedecked parishioner commented.

Heart and Soul is an annual fall fundraiser by the parishioners of The Holy Family Episcopal Church for numerous and varied charities in the county. This fall event has the men of the parish pit roasting a whole pig for some of the best barbeque and for yard sales of donated items.

Not to be outdone, the ladies of the church, calling themselves Friends of Heart and Soul, who love to cook, launched their own annual charity event in February of last year. It was so successful and so much fun it has now become an annual event. The parish hall limits seating to 80 people who want to enjoy a real tea party and contribute to the needs of others.

Organized by Joyce Dewey and Katharine Armentrout of Big Canoe, varied tea pots were placed on each table and warm made-from-scratch bite size mincemeat pastries passed. A long table holding a variety of multiple English style tea sandwiches and sweets provided a favorite for all to select from. Flowers for the tables were picked in Florida by a parishioner and brought back for spring-like table decorations.

This year’s High Tea raised over $2,000 according to Armentrout.
