Past Hats & High Tea Events

Our Last Event

The 5th Annual Hats & High Tea was a great success, raising over $25,000 for student scholarships and faculty grants. It was held at Cal Lutheran overlooking beautiful Kingsmen Park on April 26, 2015.

The event included a champagne reception, high tea, musical and theatrical entertainment, silent auction along with table decoration and hat contests.
