The event takes place on Saturday, May 11, 2013, from 12:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in the hotel’s Colonnade Room.
Celebrit/model mother-daughter duos will don the latest “Lilly” spring and summer fashions. CBS Anchor Lesli Foster with daughter Jordon and NBC Anchor Eun Yang with daughter Carys; are just some of the celebrity models taking to the Fairmont runway to help support wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. WTOP Radio’s Man About Town - Bob Madigan will once again serve as the Master of Ceremonies.
While indulging a passion for these unique and brightly colored Lilly Pulitzer® fashions that have been warm weather chic ever since Jackie Kennedy slipped one on in the 1960s, guests will enjoy a lavish tea that, like Lilly, is both classic and new. Fairmont’s culinary team will serve mainstays like watercress, salmon and egg salad sandwiches, and homemade scones with lemon curd and real Devonshire cream, alongside kid-pleasing peanut butter and jam. The sweet tray will be rounded out with everything from herbal tea cookies to berry tartlets and mini chocolate chip cookies. For an added touch of sparkle, alongside Fairmont’s signature Metropolitan Tea blends, butlers will be passing Kir Royales and Mimosas.
Come dressed for the occasion - prizes will be awarded for the best “vintage Lilly” and a silent auction will feature numerous luxuries including weekend get-a-ways at several Fairmont Hotels. Guests will receive take-home Lilly goodie bags courtesy of Lizanne Jeveret of Pink Palm at Bethesda Row, and complimentary valet parking will be provided. Tickets for the Tickled Pink Tea are $85 per adult and $25 for children 16 and under. 100% of the proceeds go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-Atlantic, a nonprofit organization that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
