CRESTVIEW —Organizers of the Third Annual Fashion Spree and Tea: A Spring Social, benefiting Covenant Hospice, need volunteers to host a table of six to eight guests.   

The Kentucky Derby-themed event, set for 2-4 p.m. April 27 at First Baptist Church of Crestview, will feature several tea selections, teatime treats and a fashion show by The Red Raspberry Boutique & Bridal, a derby hat contest, and a competition among table hosts.

Each volunteer host selects her table’s menu and sets the table with china and décor that reflect her personality and taste.

The event has raised more than $5,200 for the nonprofit hospice in the last two years. Events such as this tea help fund Covenant Hospice’s bereavement services, children’s support programs, chaplain services and indigent patient care in Okaloosa and Walton counties.

Covenant Hospice accepts patients regardless of ability to pay.

In 2012, the organization provided more than $1.5 million in care for uninsured or under-insured patients facing a terminal illness, a hospice spokesperson said.
