The Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital Auxiliary is putting a new twist on one of its annual springtime events.

The Auxiliary’s annual "Tea in the Garden" is scheduled Saturday, March 30, beginning at 11 a.m. And this year, the event will be held in a new location – the Rustic Ridge Wedding Barn located at New Philadelphia.

Tickets for the Tea in the Garden are $25 each and are available by calling or emailing Holly Hillyer of the hospital’s Community Relations Department at 330.260.4770 or hollyh@unionhospital.org.

Guests at the event will be a treated to an old-fashioned British-inspired tea, complete with a delicious brunch and desserts served on china from the personal collections of Auxiliary members. Each table at the event will be individually decorated by Auxiliary members and volunteers in a wide variety of themes and designs. A silent auction and raffle are included in the activities, and each guest will receive a complimentary teacup and saucer.

All proceeds from the Tea in the Garden are used by the Auxiliary to buy patient care equipment and improve facilities at Union Hospital. Since its inception, the Auxiliary has raised and donated more than $4 million to the hospital. All proceeds generated by the Auxiliary and its events are donated exclusively to Union Hospital and stay local to assist with providing healthcare services to the residents of the Tuscarawas Valley.

The Union Hospital Auxiliary hosts several events throughout the year – including the Tea in the Garden – as fund-raisers for Union Hospital. More details about the Auxiliary are available on the UH website and at the Union Hospital Auxiliary page on Facebook.
