Each year, The Angels Against Abuse, a local charity that sponsors the Mad Hatters’ Tea Party, reaches out to Admiral Farragut Academy in hopes that our cadets who would like to volunteer for their special event. The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party is held in September at the beautifully decorated Coliseum in St. Petersburg. The event hosts about 300 children who live in the child welfare system. It is a wonderful fairy-tale event for these children who don’t have birthday parties and have never been to Disney. Our cadets help run the games, distribute prizes, wait tables for lunch, and of course, serve the birthday cake!
Our volunteers were treated to a pizza party from the members of The Angels Against Abuse as a thank you for their outstanding job of making the children feel so special on this festive day.
