'High Tea' time for HREI

| May 19, 2021 1:00 AM

The annual High Tea fundraiser for the Human Rights Education Institute is scheduled noon to 3 p.m. Saturday at The Coeur d'Alene Resort.

Recently retired Kootenai County Sheriff's Capt. Kim Edmondson will speak about "Serving through Conflict." 

"Through empathy, awareness, and healing we can transform our differences and manage our own self-made conflicts," a flyer said.

Lilian Smith, 2021 Coeur d'Alene graduate and valedictorian, will speak on "Equity in education and student leadership."

This is a fun event with a tea party theme, contest for table dressing and best tea party hat. There is also a silent auction. Funds support K-12 bullying and suicide prevention, multicultrual classroom experiences, and human rights programming.

Tickets are $60 for adults, $30 for students and $20 for children.
