High Tea at Itasca Country Club to help benefit St. Coletta of Wisconsin
Posted On: October 22, 2012

Nearly 50 women were in attendance on the afternoon of October 18th, at Itasca Country Club in Itasca, Illinois for a High Tea luncheon set to benefit the programs and services of St. Coletta.  Mary Ann Vanaria and Pam Harding, board chairs of the advocacy group, Illinois Friends, were responsible for the event.  The afternoon was delightful with guest speaker, Marti King Tracy, gemologist, from Fey & Co. Jewelers in LaGrange, IL providing attendees with a wide variety of birthstones in addition to gemstone types, cuts, and care. In addition, three vendors were exhibiting their products including: Carly Baranak of the Funky Zebra, Mary Francissen of Park Lane Jewelry, and Pat Dayton of Patti’s Purses.  Lori Miller, Development Coordinator for St. Coletta, was also on hand to provide the group with more insight into St. Coletta’s service programs. Events like this are a reflection of the dedication our families and friends have to our mission and we thank you for your ongoing support! Also, thanks to everyone who took their time to attend, what a great group of ladies!
