Kappa Iota Zeta's "Tea with Z" was held Sunday, April 19, 2015 at the Radcliffe Presbyterian Church. This year marked the 21st anniversary of our signature event that pays homage to the life of Zeta member and author, Zora Neale Hurston.
Guests were encouraged to dress in their Sunday's Best with hats and gloves included. The tea is sponsored by table hostess who decorated their tables with a unique flare to impress their guests and in the hopes of winning a prize. There is a HATITUDE competition allowing guests to “strut their stuff” and show off their hats from the smallest to largest, casual to classy, and everything in between. Attendees also had the opportunity to view beautiful teapots from around the world and cast their vote for the most impressive. Entertainment was provided via a special reading of Zora’s classic quotes by the Ramey Sisters and an inspirational hymn sung by the Royal Doves.
Special thanks to the sorors of Sigma Mu Zeta and Rho Xi Zeta for their support of the Tea with Z and to the KIZ youth groups who participated. It was a delightful afternoon and we look forward to hosting next year’s event.
