An Afternoon Fit for Royal-Tea

Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Southwest Florida (RMHC SWFL) invites you to a Royal Tea Party on Thursday, November 16, 2023, at Shangri-La Springs in Bonita Springs, FL.

Festivities begin at 11:30 am with a champagne reception in the majestic gardens of Shangri-La Springs, followed by Afternoon Tea, including scrumptious tea sandwiches, scones, and more. The day will offer lots of excitement, including a strolling fashion show featuring unique and beautiful designs by Gretchen Scott Designs; an auction of stunning teapots painted by local celebrities; raffle prizes and give-a-ways; and a hat contest where we encourage attendees to wear their favorite hat or fascinator in true Royal fashion. Additionally, we are offering a VIP opportunity that includes a private sensory-based walking tour of Shangri-La’s organic garden (limited to 20 VIPs) at 10:30 am before the Tea Party begins.
Proceeds from the Royal Tea Party directly benefit RMHC SWFL’s free-of-charge programs and services for children and families, such as the Ronald McDonald House®, Ronald McDonald Family Room®, at Golisano Children’s Hospital, and the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® Program.
