The St. Germaine Children’s Charity hosted its 29th annual Silver Tea on Dec. 4, 2012 at the La Jolla home of Holly Casele Holden and Emmet Holden to raise money for programs that care for abused children in San Diego.

St. Germaine’s sponsors agencies that provide care, shelter and treatment of at-risk youth. Its statistics state that in 2007, the San Diego Child Abuse hotline received 75,000 calls.

At the fundraiser, members sipped tea and nibbled cookies and sandwiches as they shopped the silent auction.

This year’s beneficiaries include the Angels Foster Family Network; A Reason To Survive (ARTS); Casa De Amparo’s children’s shelter; Center for Community Solutions; The Children’s Initiative; Family Health Centers of San Diego; Healthy Start Military Family Resource Center and SAY San Diego; Home Start; New Haven Youth and Family Services; San Diego Armed Services YMCA; South Bay Community Services; Sports Training, Academics, Recreation/Police Athletic League (STAR/PAL); and the Women’s Resource Center.

Donations are accepted year-round, but the Silver Tea is their biggest fundraiser.
