The Emmaus St. Leo’s Ladies High Tea is back in 2018, bigger and better than ever!

In 2018, the Animals hope to raise $15,000 from the event, with 100% of the funds raised to be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Attendees will be able to bid on fantastic items through the silent auction or win them via the raffle.

There will be entertainment provided by one of our own in Tom Buick as well as a speech by the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Attendees will be provided food and unlimited drinks all day, as we aim to help and do our part to fight the insidious disease we call Breast Cancer.
