Tea & Tonic With a Twist Event Benefits Sexual Assault Survivors

| June 5, 2021 | 0 Comments

Center for Community Solutions’ (CCS) Tea & Tonic with a Twist event will be held at 2 p.m., Friday, June 18, 2021. This year, attendees will have the option to join the annual event in person at beautiful Coasterra for a Mexican fusion interpretation of the usual tea fare or attend virtually from the comfort of their own home. All proceeds will help CCS provide nearly 19,000 San Diegans with hope, healing, and prevention this year.

“After having to cancel our event last year because of the pandemic, we’re eager to see our compassionate supporters in-person or virtually at this very critical and special Tea & Tonic for CCS,” says CEO, Verna Griffin-Tabor.

In addition to live music and a live and silent auction, this year’s program at Coasterra features Chanel Miller, an inspiration to assault survivors worldwide. Chanel Miller is a writer and artist. Her memoir, “Know My Name,” was a New York Times bestseller, a New York Times Book Review Notable Book, and a winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, the Ridenhour Book Prize, and the California Book Award. She was named one of the Forbes 30 Under 30 and a Time Next 100 honoree and was a Glamour Woman of the Year honoree under her pseudonym, Emily Doe. Not only will attendees get to hear Miller speak, they will also receive a complimentary copy of her book, “Know My Name.”
