Yesterday was the second of two tea parties held at Wystone’s World Teas to benefit Dolls for Daughters®. On Saturday three young girls and their dolls showed up for tea with mothers, grandmothers and even a daddy. It was also wonderful to see an adult Mother/Daughter duo join the event. This event was for Mother’s and Daughter’s but was nice to see how each group put their own touch on the event.
It was a very nice to share my story about Kenzi and the reason for Dolls for Daughters® with everyone at both events. Many of the girls both days wanted to know where the dolls they brought were going. I explained about the collection of dolls in 2007 and 2008 and how the dolls were given to The Samaritan House, SafeHouse Denver, The Gathering Place and The Denver East Collaborative. Dolls for Daughters® is very excited that we have already started our doll collection for the 2009 Holiday Season and look forward to donating the dolls that were collected at the Tea Parties. Thank you to everyone who attended the Tea Parties, we hope to see you in the future at more Dolls for Daughter’s events.
Here are some pictures from our event on Saturday, June 27, 2009.
A huge thank you to the wonderful staff at Wystone’s World Teas and Wy Livingston for hosting the first tea parties to benefit Dolls for Daughters®.
