TEMECULA – The Temecula Valley chapter of National Charity League Inc. hosted its annual Chapter Tea and Jr. Showcase Fashion Show Sunday, Nov. 17, at the Wilson Creek Winery ballroom in Temecula. Two hundred and sixty members were in attendance wearing their favorite tea hat.
The Chapter Tea is a time-honored National Charity League Inc. tradition. Each year the mother-daughter tea is paired with the Jr. Showcase Fashion Show. Ticktocker daughters are instructed about tea etiquette throughout their six-year program. Guests were treated to a selection of teas, finger sandwiches and desserts before the fashion show began. The junior class participated in the fashion show, modeling three outfit changes: tea attire, extracurricular and their personal style. In the program, the focus is on the girls being confidant, young women who have learned the value of etiquette, eye contact and poise. The ultimate goal is that these types of NCL experiences educate and enhance their lives, guiding them toward being leaders in their communities and a lifelong commitment to serving others.
National Charity League is one of the nation’s most well-respected and oldest mother-daughter organizations with its mission to foster mother-daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences. Currently the NCL Inc. has 271 chapters across the United States, and over 75,000 members and alumnae. Annually, its members from coast to coast volunteer over 1 million hours in their local communities.
