The First Ladies’ Tea is an annual fundraising event that provides critical support for Imagination Library in Alaska, which sends a free book each month in the mail to more than 18,000 Alaska children from birth to age 5 across 116 Alaska communities. This hallmark event raises public awareness of the impact early literacy has on a child’s educational development and Best Beginnings’ work.
Though COVID-19 has changed many things in 2020, one thing remains the same. Children still need access to high-quality books and early learning experiences. That’s why Best Beginnings remains committed to hosting the First Ladies’ Tea, with a twist. Co-hosts and ticket holders will be invited to take their tea to-go, with a leisurely drive through The Marilaine’s rotunda driveway where our First Ladies of Alaska and Best Beginnings will be waiting to greet you with a heart-felt thank you and a cup of tea.
We invite you to join us and help keep the books coming to Alaska children.
