CHAMBERSBURG, Pa.—Freedom Valley Chorus held a tea June 9 at St. Paul United Methodist Church in Chambersburg. The event included a four-course tea served on antique china, silent and Chinese auction items, and entertainment by the chorus, which is a chapter of Sweet Adelines, International.
Proceeds from the event will go to purchase music and education materials for the chorus.
The chorus also donated $500 to Breast Cancer Awareness — Cumberland Valley, and $250 to the church where it hosted the event.
Tea committee chairwoman Elaine Gerwig told attendees that BCA-CV was chosen as a recipient since a number of members of the chorus and their family members have been affected by breast cancer.
The chorus is a group of 25 women who sing four-part a capella harmony. Members come from south central Pennsylvania and Hagerstown. They rehearse every Monday evening at St. Paul United Methodist Church, 750 Norland Ave., Chambersburg. Visitors are welcome at rehearsals. The chorus is available to sing at a variety of venues throughout the area.
The chorus will present an afternoon concert Saturday, Nov. 10, at 2 p.m. at St. Paul UM Church. Admission will be by donation.
