TOUR OF TABLES
Theme: My Favorite Things

In October of 2022, HELPERS held our first Tour of Tables Fundraiser with the theme “To Everything There is a Season.” Our second Tour of Tables fundraiser will be held on October 18 th here at Hildebrand Hall. Tour of Tables is a unique fundraising event in which the public is invited to “tour” imaginative tablescapes designed by Table Hosts. The theme for this year’s event is “My Favorite Things.” This
theme offers table hosts a wide range of options for decorating their table in whatever way they decide that expresses their favorite things. Once table hosts have signed up with HELPERS to host and decorate a table, they are provided with a packet of tickets to sell for her table. The tickets are $20 per person and includes viewing all the uniquely decorated tables, sharing a delicious brunch, socializing, and door
prizes galore. If you are interested in becoming a Table Host or if you would like to attend the event, contact HELPERS. Further details below.
