ESA’s table tour benefits ministerial association
February 18. 2014 2:35PM
The Dell Rapids chapter of ESA and the Dell Rapids Area Ministerial Association will again host the “Tour of Tables” benefit Saturday March 8.
The event opens at 10 a.m., with a luncheon at 11:30 a.m., at the parish hall at St. Mary Catholic Church.
Members are inviting any groups, families or friends to participate by hosting or sponsoring a table setting, with a cost of $15 per seat or $120 per table, which a hostess decorates with a theme of their choosing.
Hostesses commit to bringing eight people. A few individually-seated tables will be available on a first come first serve basis.
This is ESA’s seventh year hosting the “Tour of Tables” benefit.
Renee Wendinger, author of “Extra! Extra! Orphan Trains and Newsboys of New York,” will be the featured speaker.
Proceeds from the event will go to DRAMA’s Families in Need Fund, which assists local people who are in a bind pay for anything from heating bills to gas to groceries.
Last year ESA’s “Tour of Tables” raised $3,265 for the DRAMA fund.
Tables are on a space-available basis, with an estimated maximum of 28 available. More than 20 have already been claimed.
Feb. 21 is the ideal deadline for sign-up.
