'Mad Hatter' Event on June 10 to Benefit Moores UCSD Cancer Center

 

May 18, 2007  |  

As every Cheshire Cat knows, the Mad Hatter throws the best tea parties in Wonderland. And now he’s betting his top hat that the one he’s planning at the Moores UCSD Cancer Center will be his best ever.

The event is scheduled from 2:30 to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 10, at the Moores UCSD Cancer Center, 3855 Health Sciences Dr., La Jolla.

Tickets are $25 each, which covers a healthy English high tea provided by the Center’s Healing Foods Kitchen, and a papier-mache hat – styles for men and women – ready for decorating. Guests may purchase a variety of materials – from feathers and flowers to real jewels – to create fanciful hats to keep or donate to the Cancer Center’s pediatric cancer program. Pre-decorated hats will also be available for purchase for those who would prefer this option.

Hat decorating will start at 2:30 p.m., followed by high tea, a silent auction, hat fashion show and visit from the White Rabbit.  Auction items range from gift baskets to a week-long stay in a beautiful beach house in La Paz, Mexico. Proceeds benefit the cooking class program for patients at the Center.

Reservations by June 6: 858-822-6829
