Haute Tea at the St. Regis
Hats and stilletos are de riguer for the Second Annual "Haute Tea" on Tuesday, May 21 at the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, to benefit the Young Society of Love and Hope's efforts to raise awareness about diabetes. The bespoke Tea will include a champagne reception followed by a three-course lunch. Scones & clotted cream and finger sandwiches will also grace the tables, along with formal tea service. This year, the famous Parisian silver house, Christofle (of Bal Harbour) will adorn the event with luxurious silver throughout. Attendees will also enjoy a fashion presentation by Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour, a silent auction and prizes to the finest hats of the day.
This fun and unique afternoon is designed to bring women together while increasing awareness about diabetes, and what better way to support a cure than through sheer indulgence at the St. Regis? Because it's haute to be charitable. Hats and Heels encouraged! The cost is $135 per person. For more information and tickets,visit: www.diabetesresearch.org/haute-tea or call 1-800-321-3437.
