Mad Hatter Tea Party Fundraiser

Marta Block


Here at GigMasters we love fun fundraisers. We're thrilled to be able to present this one from photographer Cat Cutillo.  Two hundred guests donned their best hat and garden party attire for Lund’s 3rd Annual Mad Hatter’s Tea & Bubbly in South Burlington, Vermont. It was an afternoon of mayhem and merriment filled with scones, fresh berries, tea sandwiches, pastries, tea from around the world, champagne, and more. Festivities included a treasure hunt, musical toad stools, face painting, hat making and croquet. 

The most original hats won prizes. The event helped raise more than $23,000 to support Lund’s programs that strengthen children and families across Vermont.
