2016 Fall Coffee
Garden Tea Party and Purse Auction, Oct 2, 2016
Guests enjoyed the beautiful garden setting with tea fare of scones, savories, sweets and tea. The auction followed the tea fare. The auction was extremely fun, and at times very competitive. An evening purse donated by Coterie member Pege Bailey-Brow brought in the highest bid at $75 by winner Linda Branson, Coterie President, wife of Dr. Walt Branson. Pege’s purse was a present from her first husband when they were stationed in Taiwan and attended many formal events. It was lovingly cared for by Pege throughout the years and Linda is looking forward to enjoying the purse for many more years!
Around 40 purses were auctioned off and made $1000+ for the Scholarship fund. Lina’s 3 sets of china made for beautiful place settings, and added a formal flair to this delightful event.
