2nd Annual Colored Girls Tea Party

$770 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 25 people in 40 months
Kelly Snider is twenty eight years old, and holds an undergraduate degree in early childhood education from CUNY Hostos. Her daily activities include two jobs, both of which revolve around childhood education and development, two responsibilities from which she derives great joy.

During the six years that Snider has served as an educator, she has noticed a lack of special events and occasions for the gathering of minority girls in urban neighborhoods, such as the one in which she grew up. She, thus, felt obligated to create such a space for this demographic, and arrived at the idea of a tea party. The lack of photos on the internet of Black and brown girls at tea parties further motivated Snider.

So, with the help of friends, she advertised for and planned her first tea party, which was to be held at the Scarsdale Teen Recreation Center in Scarsdale, New York. The little attendees with “big hats and pretty dresses” were met with tea, finger sandwiches cookies, and other pastries, as well as twenty four gift-filled bags and brand new books. The girls, who learned table etiquette for a majority of the event, also made new friends, and Snider hopes that these bonds will be long-lasting.This Tea Party was such a success that I must do it again!

After the tea party a few a the girls created ongoing friendships. We even went and did other activities together in smaller groups within the last year.

The girls ask all the time when is the next one! And becuase its so expensive between buying supplies, treats, books, tea sets and renting the centers (for this year) I need to assure that I can afford to do it once a year. However your donations will make it totally possibe this year. 

Its a great cause! Please read the blog written by a college student about the tea party http://theblackcollegian.tumblr.com/post/98725793742/when-my-alarm-clock-rings-every-morning-it
