LEHMAN TWP. — The Lake-Lehman Foundation held its annual high tea in the Hayfield House ballroom on the Penn State Wilkes-Barre campus May 14.

The event featured a huge assortment of finger sandwiches, salads, homemade desserts and teas. Guests also had the chance to win one of the many baskets on display.

All proceeds from the event benefit scholarships offered by the foundation.

During the tea, members of the Lake-Lehman Theatre Troupe entertained the roughly 75 guests in attendance with musical selections from their recent performance of “Into the Woods.”

The junior varsity and varsity cheerleaders served dessert to the guests.

Guest speaker Shelby Foster, who graduated from Lake-Lehman in 2012 and was the valedictorian of her class, offered some advice to the many high school students in attendance. Foster recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry at Penn State’s main campus.

The tea is just one of the many fundraisers the foundation holds throughout the year, said Vice President Debbie Anderson. Roughly $50,000 per year is raised through events, such as a character breakfast, Breakfast with Santa, Night of Mayhem, outdoor movies and a cow pie Bingo contest.

Proceeds from the events have helped fund a variety of needs in the district, such as computer programs for kindergarten classrooms, sports equipment, risers for the chorus, band uniforms, art supplies and new music stands.
