The Annual AMC Valentine Tea was held Friday, Feb. 15 at Tea by Two in Bel Air with a sellout crowd. Speaker Bob Rich from Saxon's Diamond Centers was entertaining and most informative as he shared samples of diamonds in various colors. Did you know that there are blue, yellow, brown and black diamonds? Oohs and aahs were heard throughout the tea room as samples were passed around for all to see. The Pandora Bracelet, donated by Saxon's, was a tantalizing auction item.
The delicious menu for high tea was delicious and varied with lots of chocolate and fabulous teas all served in the charming atmosphere of classic table settings and decorations. This was a great outing filled with love and friendship. This Valentine Tea was dedicated to the memory of Ed Geisendaffer and all those lost to cancer. The many patrons who attended this tea and/or made donations to AMC Cancer Research Center and Johns Hopkins Pediatric Oncology Center in their memory allowed us to realize a bottom line of more than $1,500. Thank you!
