Spring Tea 2015

Another beautiful Tea is in the history books.  This year's event was held in support of a wonderful organization, raising over $3,000 for Shevet Achim. Shevet is a ministry that seeks out Palestinian and Iraqi families with young children who need life saving heart surgeries, and who would otherwise not be able to afford surgery. Shevet coordinates with Israeli doctors and hospitals, provides transport and the funds for the needed medical procedures and also provides a safe place for the family and the child to stay before and after surgery.

Thank you to our wonderful speaker from Shevet, to Four on the Floor for providing the entertainment, men of Bethany for serving us, and to the Tea commission for planning such a wonderful and meaningful event!
