It’s a Tea Party of sorts…The Discovery Center Foundation’s Virtual Tea Party

Tea for you is what we plan
To relax, and enjoy! We hope you can.

“Foundation Tea”- from all of us.
It’s our Foundation Fundraiser Without the Fuss.

Foundation Tea is a special blend
There’s a message here for you, my friend.

While you sit and sip some tea,
Consider us and what might be.

We plan for the future of this place so rare.
It will only thrive when others care.

We’re hoping you’ll help us grow
Your gift helps us-more than you know.

No need for you to leave your chair,
Wear a tie or “do” your hair.

Just click to donate to us.
