The Arc Mid-South thanks all of its supporters who attended our 2nd Annual International Tea and Fashion Show on Saturday September 17. We had a great time watching performances by students from Darshini Natyalaya, the Annunciation Greek Church’s Athenian Dance Troupe and modeling by the Erolé Exposé Showcase Models. The tasting of international foods was yummy, too!

The Arc Mid-South hosted its first “Tea Around The World,”International Tea and Fashion Show Extravaganza on Saturday, May 9th at the Crowne Plaza Memphis East. With over 200 guests in attendance, this event was a huge success.
With a sampling of the tastiest global cuisines, a silent auction that piqued the interest of every guest, and a variety of musical entertainment that included contemporary dance, performing arts, and performances represented by Latino Memphis, attendees were pleasantly surprised at the multiple showcases this event provided.
The highlight of the event didn’t just stop there, however; “Glitz to Glamour”, a production hosted by Ms. Benea’s House of Fashion, provided a grandiose array of fashion that sparkled the room as the models showcased their guises.
“Tea Around The World” was represented by 12 various countries as tables were uniquely and creatively decorated by The Arc Mid-South’s employees. Countries represented included Africa, Jamaica, Switzerland, Sri Lanka, Japan, and North America.
While the International Tea Event took place on a seemingly carefree afternoon, this event had a dual purpose: to raise funds to support the programs and services provided by The Arc Mid-South.
Special thanks are, of course, extended to our attendees, board members, committee members, staff and volunteers for making this an event to remember. Due to the event’s attendance and because of our many supporters of the “Tea Around The World”, this will now be earmarked as one of The Arc Mid-South’s new annual fundraisers.
