Seatings are at 2pm* (*VIP Guests are seated at 1:30pm )
Please join us for an afternoon of pleasure while we enjoy a lovely English-style tea in a beautiful, historic, privately owned Landmark Victorian home near downtown San José. (Note that as with with most Victorians, there are stairs.)
A feast for all the senses… Sit in opulent splendor as you enjoy a leisurely afternoon sipping tea and feasting on a generous assortment of delectable treats. Wonderful items await your generous bids in the Silent Auction, and you can purchase tickets for our delightful raffle.
Full Afternoon Tea Includes:
An assortment of delicious tea sandwiches, savory items, a fresh scone with homemade lemon curd or scrumptious jam, dessert, nut cup, grapes, and handmade chocolate—plus all the freshly-brewed Earl Grey and Herbal Tea you care to drink.
Several Ticket Types to Choose From:
* In order to be seated together, all tickets must be purchased together in one transaction. For parties over six, in very rare cases, we may not be able to seat your entire party at the same table; however, we will do our best to seat you all in the same room.
Please know that our event sells out quickly each year, so we encourage you purchase your tickets early.
