Fashion to a Tea, which also features a silent auction, is a signature fundraising event of the Guardian ad Litem Foundation, 20th Judicial Circuit. The organization’s mission is ensuring that every abused, neglected or abandoned youth in Southwest Florida has a voice as they navigate the judicial, education and child welfare systems. The foundation recruits, trains and provides support for court-appointed volunteer child advocates who represent the best interests of a child until a safe, permanent placement is established. The nonprofit also raises funds that help meet a child’s health, educational and social needs.

Fashion to a Tea will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Port Charlotte Beach Park Pavilion, 4500 Harbor Blvd. in Port Charlotte. The cost is $55 per person and guests are encouraged to wear hats that complement the high tea environment.

Sponsorships start at $500 and include marketing opportunities, event tickets and additional benefits.
