This weekend called for celebration. I was blessed with friends and colleagues helping me celebrate my turn of a half-century in honor of our "Knowledge is Power - Three Cups of Tea" project (http://www.3cupsoftea-brookdale.info/
). We are so very close to reach our goal: $35,000 towards a school in Pakistan/Afghanistan in the name of Brookdale College. With the last funds coming in we should be able to send the final check to Central Asia Institute by the end of this week. YES! We did it!
Several teas were enjoyed during the FifTea: Welcome Tea, Formal Afternoon Garden Tea, Royal Tea Dance, Three Cups of Tea, and High Tea.
In lieu of gifts guests were asked to donate to the project and/or bring a teacup for our Three Cups of Tea table. Wonderful and creative cups were given - such treasures - that will be used for great tea times for years to come. One cup was accompanied by a beautiful painting of it by Gerda Liebmann. And then there was this other gift: Wine and wine glasses engraved with Tea 4 U. Most certainly the only Tea Coach wine in this world! The wine will certainly be enjoyed - but the bottle treasured forever. Want one? Final Cut of Ocean, NJ can help you. They are experts (and great friends and tea drinkers, too.) http://www.finalcut.com/
