Mad Hatter’s Tea Party is today in Sequim

The event celebrates breast cancer survivors and commemorates those who lost the battle.

SEQUIM — The 19th annual Mad Hatter’s Tea Party is today.

The luncheon will be from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Sunland Golf & Country Club, 109 Hilltop Drive, Sequim.

Tickets are $30. RSVPs are requested.

The tea party will include refreshments, guest speakers, a performance — and creative hats.

It celebrates breast cancer survivors and commemorates those who lost the battle.

Proceeds go to Operation Uplift of Port Angeles and the Olympic Medical Cancer Center of Sequim.

The medical speaker will be Dr. Patrick Jewell, radiation oncologist at Olympic Medical Cancer Center.

The inspirational speaker will be survivor Ranay Yarian.

The tea party is a tradition dating back to October 1998, when friends of the late Jan Chatfield gathered for a potluck in her honor.

Chatfield, who was receiving chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer, wore a hat to the potluck because her hair had fallen out, so others began wearing hats to the event.

To RSVP, call Arlene McClelland at 360-681-4815.
