Victorian Tea Rescheduled for Aug. 16

Due to growing concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we will be rescheduling this year’s 16th Annual Victorian Tea, which was originally scheduled for Sunday, April 19, 2020. The Tea is rescheduled to take place on Sunday, Aug. 16, 2020.
We ask that everyone please help spread the word.

Please mark your calendars and plan to join us on Aug. 16, 2020, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the Omni William Penn Hotel (location subject to change due to COVID-19). Many thanks for your cooperation and understanding. We hope to see you in August!
We greatly appreciate everyone’s understanding and help as we work to ensure the safety of those involved and to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Sojourner House will host its 16th Annual Victorian Tea on Sunday, August 16, 2020, 2 to 4 p.m., at the Omni William Penn Hotel (location subject to change due to COVID-19). A social hour will take place from 1 to 2 p.m.

The Victorian Tea is an important awareness event and fundraiser that brings together hundreds of individuals: many mothers, daughters, fathers, and sons, along with corporate, community, and church-based friends.  Attendees will enjoy a traditional tea, silent auction and raffle, while learning about the award-winning work of East Liberty-based Sojourner House — a six-month residential rehabilitation program for addicted mothers and their children — and hearing the inspiring stories of the families who have lived there.

This year’s Honorary Chair is Leah Lizarondo, Co-founder and CEO of 412 Food RescueChatham University’s Words Without Walls creative writing program will be this year’s Pearl of Hope Honoree.

Please help us celebrate the successes of our families, and support us as we continue our fight to keep families together so they can become healthy, productive citizens of our community.
