Yesterday, First Lady Dianne Bentley went to the First Annual Tacky Tea sponsored by Goodwill Industries Volunteer Services. This tea helped raise money for Goodwill and the causes it supports. The celebrity emcee was Twinkle Cavanaugh, Public Service Commissioner, who joined the effort by wearing a hat purchased from Goodwill. Participants had been asked to wear their tackiest outfit and whoever was the most tacky was awarded a prize. Three ladies placed for tackiest but first place won a gift certificate for a makeover at a local salon.
During the event, ladies enjoyed tea and refreshments, but the highlight was the Vintage Show "A Day and Night on the Titanic." This show featured fashions from that era and gave history about life on the ship. The GIVS volunteers added comedy to the routine which made the day memorable for all participants. At the conclusion, door prizes were given away, thanks to local businesses making donations.
The First Lady was honored to be in attendance and hopes to attend in the future. She is always happy to support efforts which improve the lives of Alabamians.
