Queen Elizabeth II's 91st Birthday Tea Party
Daughter of the British Empire Fundraiser and Community Outreach - bring a friend and wear your hats to a Tea Party in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's 91st birthday. DBE in Texas President, Patricia McDonald, will welcome the gathering; Her Britannic Majesty's Consul-General, Karen Bell, will toast the Queen and give a short talk on the British Monarchy. Our goal is to celebrate the Queen's birthday with an elegant British afternoon tea, and to introduce friends to DBE and British culture. Prize for best hat! T-shirts and British-made crafts available for sale. Raffle: beautiful tea pot.
The Mission of the DBE, in keeping with the Organization's objectives, is to bring together in friendship women of British and British Commonwealth birth or ancestry for charitable purposes.
Founded in 1908, the DBE is a non-profit, philanthropic organization, the main beneficiaries of which are our four retirement homes for people of all backgrounds. Our membership is comprised of a diverse group of ladies from many different backgrounds but with a common heritage and common philanthropic cause. It is the source of close and long-term friendships.
