First Lady Dianne Bentley hosted a tea in honor of the ladies at Safety Net. This program helps facilitate positive changes in the lives of youth. The girls ranged in age from eleven to eighteen and were accompanied by ladies that spend time working with them.
Chef Jim Smith served a variety of tea sandwiches, scones, cookies, and banana bread to the girls during their time at the Mansion. They also got to select from a variety of hot teas. However once the girls began to sample tea, the First Lady had glass bottle Coca Colas and water served as well.
It is important to Mrs. Bentley to positively impact the lives of Alabamians so this is just one step in the process. She shared her personal story of growing up then gave a Mansion tour to the girls before the event concluded.
