Hello! We are Onnolee and Zoe from the United Way Youth Team. We are super excited the event we are organizing, called High Tea On The Hill! This event will be a great chance for tea lovers in the community to get together and talk about all things tea! The entire United Way Youth Team has been planning it and is very excited to host this tea party. High Tea On The Hill will be on Sunday, October 18 from 1-2:30 pm in the Los Alamos High School Lobby. The theme this year is “mad hatter”, so we invite you to wear your best or silliest tea hat, and the two attendees with the best hats will receive a teapot that has been decorated by the National Art Honors Society here at Los Alamos High School. The admission for adults and children will both be $20. All of the profits made from this event will fund local youth programs throughout the community. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
