RANCHO SANTA FE — The Country Friends hosted their 14th annual Holiday Tea on Dec. 9, a chance for locals to luncheon together during this festive time of year, but most importantly, to help benefit Voices for Children. Voices for Children is a local nonprofit organization which aims to assist abused, neglected and abandoned children who have become dependents of the San Diego County Court System. Voices for Children ensures that these children will have a safe and permanent home.
The money was raised during last fall’s Art of Fashion show in the park, but the check was presented at the recent tea. Co-chairs for the event were Heidi Timlake and Devin Lucia, who said, “We’re very pleased with the turnout today. It’s an honor to be able to help Voices for Children.”
In addition to the Holiday Tea, it was also an opportunity to do some shopping. Joining the Country Friends Consignment Shop were other vendors, with products ranging from stationary to clothing, jewelry and even candy. The Westminster Carolers were also on hand, dressed in Victorian garb straight out of Dickens’ Christmas Carol. The quartet sang Christmas favorites and entertained throughout the tea service.
The Country Friends is a philanthropic organization dedicated to supporting human care agencies with an emphasis on those providing services to women, children and the elderly throughout San Diego County.
