The Guild of Houston Baptist University
The Guild Silver Tea was held on April 11 in the historic River Oaks home of Peter and Elizabeth Wareing who very graciously opened their lovely home for this event. HBU President Robert Sloan and First Lady Sue Sloan, along with the Wareings, welcomed guests.
Co-chairs Cookie Peeler and Ruth Ann Williamson began their efforts to prepare for the event in June of 2018 as they worked to assemble their committee chairs and their respective committee members. Linda Higginbotham, chair of the underwriting committee, along with her committee members, very successfully spearheaded fundraising efforts for graduate scholarships which will be awarded to deserving students in HBU’s School of Education and School of Christian Thought. Silver Stone Catering provided a delectable and beautiful array of sweet and savory refreshments. Representatives of the HBU Student Foundation assisted in moving guests through the home and adjoining outdoor garden space.
The Silver Tea was enjoyed by all in attendance, and special gratitude is extended to the Wareings, all committee members, and donors who ensured the success of the event.
