Sip, Savor…Celebrate Your Favorite Ladies This Saturday
11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Elk Grove History Museum, 9941 E. Stockton Boulevard
Sipping fine tea while sampling delicious goodies is what this charitable tradition is all about, especially when sharing it with someone special. Guests at this perennially sold out fundraiser enjoy a tea luncheon, door prizes, and the chance to win raffle prizes and awards for best themed table, hat, and ensemble—all while benefiting the Elk Grove Historical Society. Tickets are $40 per person. For more information and to reserve your seat, visit elkgrovehistoricalsociety.com.
Taco Fiesta Comes to Old Town Plaza this Saturday
