Clearwater Community Volunteers Center Goes Down the Rabbit Hole to Acknowledge Volunteers

At the CCV Center volunteer appreciation tea party tables were set up with Alice in Wonderland quotes, red roses and “EAT ME” & “DRINK ME” signs.

Tampa, FL, May 24, 2019 --( On Saturday, May 18th, the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) Center acknowledged volunteers and donors from this years Ginormous Easter Egg Hunt in Coachman Park with a complimentary Alice Wonderland Themed tea party in the center’s café-style gathering space. 16 volunteers and donors attended the event complete with hidden gifts and raffle with prizes.

Volunteers and donors who had never met one another made new connections while others were happy to see that their friends and neighbors also helped at CCV’s most recent Easter Egg Hunt.

Guests received a raffle ticket and got their seats. Tables were set up with quotes from Alice in Wonderland along with red roses and “EAT ME” and “DRINK ME” signs from the book posted near the food and drinks.

Michael Goltz, a CCV volunteer said, “I’m very happy to help CCV with their events. This Tea Party is just the icing on the cake for me.”

Ms. Gertie Perry, CCV Volunteer, acted as the event MC. She thanked them for their help, whether in the form of donations or manning the volunteer stations at the Easter Egg Hunt. Ms. Perry then made a surprise announcement and told the guests to search “high and low” for 4 hidden gifts as the person who found the item could keep it.

After all the hidden gifts were found Ms. Perry began the raffle. She reached into a bowl of tickets and called out the name of the person whose ticket she retrieved. Among the prizes won were handmade jewelry, beauty products, gift cards and a painting.

“The backbone of CCV is our Volunteers,” said Clemence Chevrot, Director of the CCV Center. “We put on this tea party to show our volunteers our appreciation for their support in CCV’s purpose of helping families and children in our community. Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard summed it up with what he wrote, ‘Your help is acceptable to us. Our help is yours.’”
