SereniTEA: Tea Benefits Cancer Research


Law, Dawn, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


When you step inside the Victorian Lady of Academy Hill Tea Parlor, you find yourself surrounded by 19th-century beauty. Lovely lace, hand-painted porcelain and soothing music make the atmosphere as warm as the tea.

That is exactly why board members of Westmoreland Walks Inc. chose to hold its first SereniTEA there to benefit breast cancer research. The group holds a yearly walk in Greensburg, but decided to bolster the profits this year.

"We've come up with some wonderful ways to raise money for breast cancer treatment and research," board member Meagan Bilik DeFazio said about the tea. "We had two seatings, each with about 30 women, and were able to raise $2,000."

The women were served Blueberry Scones, Cranberry-Walnut Children Salad, White Vivians, Chocolate Cake and White Chocolate Mint Teapot. The scenery and the cuisine were prepared by Victorian Lady owner Carol Kornides. She says the home turned tea parlor was built circa 1884 by a Greensburg attorney as a wedding gift for his daughter.

She and her husband, Jeff, love both the Victorian era and tea, of which there was plenty Saturday.

The Westmoreland Walks 5K will be Oct. 4 at Twin Lakes Park. Board members organizing the walk and the tea were Diana Campbell, Cheryl McMullen, Judge Rita Hathaway, Peggy McDonald, Kelly Urbani, Debbie Weinstein, Kathy Brown, Cricket Rizzo and Shelly Weaver.

Seen at the event: Dr. Tracy Gemmell, Dr. Rana Ziadeh, Maureen Bilik, Jen Dixon, Marilyn Bronson, Linda Roberts, Betty Keating, Tribune-Review Editor Sue McFarland and her sister-in-law Betsy, Helen McMullen, Ione Harr, Stacey Snyder, Shelley Conroy, Pat Steele, Heidi Darby, Lily Baron, Jill Hauck, Linda Petrillo, Wendy Hathaway, Mary Kiley, Jenny Mincucci, Diane McCarthy and Judy Steving.
