TEATIMEWITHANOLYMPICTWIST Children of all ages gathered with their families on a sunny Sunday afternoon for an Olympic-themed high tea, special entertainment and a silent auction to benefit THEARC’s programs for underserved children and adults in Ward 8. It’s one of the few social events of the year that encourages adults to bring along their offspring for an afternoon of bonding and benevolence. The ninth annual event was co-chaired by Nancy Cordes, Elizabeth Engel, Katharine Lucas and Jill Wiley White. THEARC, an expansive $27 million campus, offers local residents dance classes, fine arts, tutoring, medical care and more at a reduced cost or no cost at all.
