Ninth Annual "Little Women's Tea," Nov. 4

Belmont, CA, October 29, 2007 — Frilly dresses, tea cups, and little girls on their best behavior will set the scene as NDNU’s Alumni Association hosts its ninth annual “Little Women’s Tea,” November 4 at 3 p.m.

Little women, ages 6 –12, will be escorted into Ralston Hall Mansion ballroom to enjoy an afternoon of English high tea, sandwiches, dessert, and a presentation of songs from classic children’s literature performed by NDNU’s Theatre and Dance Department.

The little women will dress in semi-formal attire and must be accompanied by an adult host. They will have an opportunity to win several prizes as there will be a silent auction and raffles. The popular tea usually draws a crowd of more than 120 guests to the University.

“Now our signature holiday event, we welcome new friends to Ralston Hall Mansion as well as alumni and their family members who have attended in the past,” said NDNU Alumni Director Janet Giannini. ”In some cases, three or more generations of the same family will enjoy tea in the ballroom.

“The wonderful music performed by our students, promises to compliment an array of delicious treats in the traditional English high tea style. For the first time, we will offer a live auction with some suitable gifts for little women of all ages. It promises to be a delightful event.”

Reservations are $75 for the little woman and her host. Proceeds from the tea will benefit the Mary C. Bosque Scholarship Fund. For more information, contact Giannini at (650) 508-3515. Notre Dame de Namur University is located at 1500 Ralston Avenue in Belmont.
