On Saturday, April 25, the Women of Bethel will hold their 22nd annual Spring Tea at 12:30 p.m. in the Bethel United Church of Christ's Welcome Center, 315 E. St. Charles Road in Elmhurst.
The event features a full-tea menu in an elegant setting followed by dramatic book reviewer Jenny Riddle's one-woman show, Sally Field's memoir, "In Pieces."
In her presentations, Riddle motivates, educates, and entertains audiences with her unique interpretations of best-selling books in which she becomes the characters telling their real-life stories. For more than 15 years, Riddle has been delighting audiences with her captivating style of storytelling.
At the end of each review, she also shares her current "favorite reads."
Tickets, available beginning Monday, March 23, are $25 per person. Tickets must be purchased no later than Sunday, April 19. Seating is limited.
Tickets for the program only (without tea) are $10 at the door. The program begins at 1:45 p.m. Call (630) 516-9957 for ticket availability and information.
Spring Tea guests are invited to wear hats.
Church facilities are fully accessible and parking is available behind the church. Please enter from St. Charles Road or from Huntington Lane off Poplar.
A portion of the proceeds from the Spring Tea helps support the Elmhurst Shoe Fund, a Women of Bethel-administered program which so far in the 2019-20 school year has provided over $3,655 in vouchers to 51 families in Elmhurst schools to purchase footwear for their children.
The Rotary Club of Elmhurst and First United Methodist Church are also major contributors.
A number of other local churches, service clubs and individuals also give to the Elmhurst Shoe Fund.
