53rd Annual Silver Tea
Dec. 5, 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Silver Tea is held at the Crystal Dining Room at the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Ark. Fitted in full Holiday fashion by the St. James Episcopal Church members, this event kicks off the Christmas Season Celebrations occurring all over town throughout the month. The tables are covered with silver trays full of tea cookies and sandwiches. Each year a non-profit organization in Carroll County is chosen to receive the donations those attending give to visit and share time with friends and neighbors.
Over the 50-plus years, the tea has raised thousands of dollars for area non-profit organizations. Admission to the tea is by donation. This year’s chosen honoree is Cup of Love Ministry
