LDWC - International Women’s Day Banquet Women at Famous Tea Parties
TheLennoxville and District Women’s Centre invites Women of all ages to a banquet in celebration of International Women’s Day. Join us on Thursday, March 7th at 5:30pm in the Amédée- Beaudoin Community Centre (10 Samuel-Gratham Street in Lennoxville) for a large scale Tea Party the likes of which you’ve never seen! The price of tickets is $15 for LDWC members and $20 for non-members.
International Women’s Day is a day of celebration for the LDWC, its members and supporters. Every year, the Centre organizes a banquet; an evening of music with Carole Vincelette, good food, fun and company. This year, the Centre has recruited Nathalie Labrecque, owner of Boutique Nostalgia to create the décor and the atmosphere in the room. It is thanks to her that we have chosen the theme of Women at Famous Tea Parties. Each Table will represent its very own piece of art or media respecting this theme. Our guests will have the opportunity to choose the table they wish to be seated at (remember that there are only 8 chairs per table, so be sure to act quickly!) We invite you to come as you are, to wear a special something (hat; gloves etc.) or come as your favourite character from the Tea Party of your choice. Bring a bottle of wine, and invite your friends to join you.
Table Themes will include: FILMS: Tea with
Mussolini; Breakfast at Tiffany’s; The Bitter Tea of General Yen; Mary Poppins and Marie Antoinette. BOOKS: Alice In Wonderland; Sense and Sensibility. ART: Five O’Clock Tea - by Mary Cassatt; High Tea - by Abbott Fuller Graves; Tea in the Garden - by Henri Matisse; Japanese Tea Ceremony - by Yu Xuanji; The Famous Five - by Barbara Paterson. HISTORY: The Royal Family Tea Party.
We will be holding our traditional silent auction to raise funds for the Centre and would be grateful for any donations to this cause. Usual auction items include baked goods; knick knacks; crafts etc. In addition, this year we will also offer a table of “celebrity” auction prizes. Gifts that have been offered by various businesses in our community, such as a $100 gift certificate for Boutique Nostalgia, a gift certificate from Studio Unik for a cut and style, and more! Get a sneak peak at gifts by visiting Boutique Encore in the weeks leading up to the banquet. Bring your pocket book and see how your luck plays out.
Boutique Encore will sponsor 5 guests, so don’t let the ticket price discourage you! Be sure to call and reserve your spot as soon as possible because places are limited! We look forward to seeing you there!
