Tea with Ruth and Friends raises $2,701 for Soup of Success

Posted on Dec. 8, 2013 at 12:00 a.m.

ELKHART — The annual Victorian holiday tea event, “Tea with Ruth and Friends,” raised well over $2,000 Saturday, Dec. 7.

Organizer Ruth Rockwell said the benefit for Church Community Services’ Soup of Success program brought in $2,701 Saturday.

Much of that total came from the sale of gift baskets from Soup of Success. Rockwell said organizers created 172 baskets, with all but nine sold.

Rockwell said 119 guests registered for the tea party, which also included more than 100 volunteers and vendors.

Though the event raised more than $2,500 alone on Saturday, the total should reach $3,000 within the next few weeks, she said.
