Afternoon Tea

Please join us in celebrating young ladies of the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh.

This summer, 50 girls ages 7-10 are participating in a special program taught by friends of the Club. The girls are learning about manners, self-esteem, how to dress appropriately for special events, how to treat others and themselves with respect and much more.

The Afternoon Tea will be their reward for completing six character and etiquette classes. As a part of the program the girls receive new sundresses to wear to the Tea. They also get their hair professionally styled by local stylists.

Tea and a light lunch will be served including soup, finger sandwiches and petit fours.

During lunch, a short program will feature an empowering message from a dynamic woman speaker. In the past, the Tea has featured 2012 Miss America, Laura Kaeppeler, entrepreneur and co-founder of Culver’s restaurant, Lea Culver, local jazz music sensation, Janet Planet, Sarah Schmidt, former director of U.S. Venture, Inc., Shannon Bahrke Happe, American Olympic freestyle skier and entrepreneur, Emily Deem, co-anchor for FOX 11’s morning show Good Day Wisconsin, Judy Hehr, speaker author, coach and radio host and Becky Curran, an advocate for persons with disabilities.

This year’s program will feature speaker Mona Dixon. Mona was homeless sleeping on the streets and in shelters until age 13. A few short years later she received the coveted Boys & Girls Clubs of America “National Youth of the Year Award,” and was appointed to serve as the youngest member of the U.S. Presidential Committee. You can learn more about Mona on her website. We hope you join us for this amazing event!

This event is a wonderful opportunity to get to know Club members on a more personal level. Please come show our girls your heartwarming support!
