Sylvania Franciscan Associates Present a Garden Tea Party Fundraiser for Bethany House

Colorful Tea Table


Last year’s dapper servers delighted tea-party goers with music, dance and panache.


You are invited to the second Annual Garden Tea Party where an afternoon of fun, food and fundraising helps Bethany House, NW Ohio’s only long-term shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children.  Last year Sylvania Franciscan Associates and friends raised $3,000 to help support Bethany House, which is a ministry of the Sylvania Franciscans.

Due to COVID 19, the 2020 Tea Party has been cancelled.

  • Afternoon Tea includes elegant tea service and a delicious light lunch.
  • Bring your favorite teacup and tea party hat. (Optional)
  • Win fabulous prizes in the garden-themed raffle.
  • Open to tea lovers ages 16 and up.

Become a Sylvania Franciscan Associate!
