DAR Tea Party Benefits Bronxville Schools

BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – Serious games of bridge and delicate cakes with tea joined chances on winning designer bags and makeup Friday at the local Daughters of the American Revolution annual scholarship fundraiser.

About 70 members of the Anne Hutchinson Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and their guests mingled and snacked on tea and cake before settling into foursomes to play bridge. Some also came ready to shop the white elephant sale of member-donated items and bid on auctions that included a Prada handbag and custom floral arrangements.

“I come every year and look forward to it as a good friend of mine is a member and I support her,” said Mattie Mancini of Larchmont, who had a shopping bag of items purchased at the sale table. She added she had lost count after buying two vases and several jewelry items during the afternoon.

Member Mary Hubert of Bronxville brought a visiting guest from Chicago to share a cup of tea while another guest, Barbara Lawlor, kept her eyes on her cards while sharing that she was “enjoying” the event.

The spring affair is one of two major fundraisers for the local chapter and raises up to $2,500 for scholarships and donations to local schools in Bronxville, Eastchester, Tuckahoe, Larchmont and Pelham, along with DAR and Native American schools, said the group’s Regent April Sandmeyer.

Promoting patriotism, the group includes women who are direct descendants of a patriot from the Revolutionary period believed to have aided in the cause of American Independence.  Education, assistance to veterans and women’s issues are the chapter’s primary focus, Sandmeyer said.
