Valley residents are invited to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season at the 27th annual Poinsettia Tea from 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, December 10, at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale at Gainey Ranch. At this yearly holiday event, attendees will enjoy tea, scones, sandwiches, desserts, and entertainment while supporting Duet’s mission to promote health and well-being within the community.
During the Poinsettia Tea, guests will enjoy the festive sounds of the North Valley Chorale and Destry Jetton, Arizona Midday host and executive producer for Channel 12, will serve as the Mistress of Ceremonies. The Dosia Carlson KARED About Award will be awarded to Dr. Wilma Basnett Emerson who has served as superintendent of the Osborn School District for 26 years and volunteers with a variety of local organizations. Dr. Basnett Emerson currently serves on Duet’s board of directors and has provided the nonprofit with strategic leadership for many years.
All proceeds raised from the Poinsettia Tea will support Duet’s health and aging services that are provided free of charge for family caregivers, grandparents raising grandchildren, homebound adults and faith communities. SRP and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona are Gold Sponsors of the event.
