Se­ton tea, hat com­pe­ti­tion set for Jan. 19

Austin American-Statesman - - COMMUNITY NEWS - Lake Travis View

LAKE­WAY — Lake­way As­so­ci­ates of Se­ton mem­bers are putting their heads and hats to­gether for their an­nual High Tea at 11 a.m. Jan. 19 at The Hills Coun­try Club.

“We are hon­ored to have Karen Atwell, Me­lanie Reese and Emily Champ from the high-fash­ion store Suzie D’s as judges for our an­nual hat com­pe­ti­tion,” event co-chair Bar­bara Beebe said. “Ev­ery­one is en­cour­aged to wear their finest cha­peaus.”

This year the Lake­way As­so­ci­ates of Se­ton did not mail hard-copy in­vi­ta­tions to the group’s an­nual tea.

“We wanted to cut ex­penses and do­nate even more to the mu­sic and recre­ational ther­apy pro­grams at Se­ton Shoal Creek Hospi­tal,” said event co-chair Cindy Ko­trady.

Dead­line for reser­va­tions is Jan. 9, but at­ten­dees are en­cour­aged to make their reser­va­tions now be­fore the event sells out. Guests may dec­o­rate a ta­ble for 10 and com­pete for prizes, or be seated in­di­vid­u­ally. Dec­o­ra­tions range from the ele­gant to the out­ra­geous. All at­ten­dees will help pick the win­ners.

Se­ton Shoal Creek Hospi­tal is the only men­tal health­care fa­cil­ity in Cen­tral Texas that treats chil­dren, teens and adults.

“Lake Travis-area res­i­dents who need ur­gent psy­chi­atric care are of­ten re­ferred to Shoal Creek,” said Kim Near­burg, Lake­way As­so­ci­ates pres­i­dent. “Our group is the hospi­tal’s largest donor, pro­vid­ing over $35,000 in 2012.”

The cost for the event is $30 per per­son. Checks can be made out to Lake­way As­so­ci­ates of Se­ton and mailed to Beebe at 712 Van­guard, Lake­way, Texas 78734.
