AbsenTea Fundraiser

September 24, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


You are cordially invited to our AbsenTea: A Zoom Fundraiser for the Swannanoa Valley Museum!

Celebrate the culture of tea and support the Swannanoa Valley Museum at this fun
and (of course) highly cultured evening event! Due to COVID-19, the museum has had to postpone its in-person “Tea with a Twist” until 2021. Instead, we can enjoy all things tea together on Zoom. Our AbsenTea Zoom event will feature:
-Fun Competitions including “Most Ridiculous Hat” and “Most Beautiful Tea Pot”
-A quiz on the history and uses of Tea
-An interview with LeAnne Johnson, SVM’s new Executive Director
-Door Prizes including a Charleston Tea Plantation Gift Basket, Teacup from a Black Mountain Potter and much much more.

Individual -$35.00 (1 door prize entry)*
Couples Ticket- $65.00 (2 door prize entries)*
Supporter $150.00 (5 door prize entries).* The supporter ticket counts as a ticket for one individual and a generous gift to the Swannanoa Valley Museum.

*Plus taxes and fees

All proceeds from this fundraiser go directly to supporting the museum, which has not been able to resume normal operations during 2020 due to the pandemic.

Event sponsored by Black Mountain tea shop Spice It Up! and the Charleston Tea Garden.
