Sojourner House will host its Ninth Annual Victorian Tea Sunday, April 21 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at Pittsburgh’s Grand Hall at the Priory (614 Pressley Street, 15212).

Attendees will enjoy a traditional tea, silent auction and raffle while learning about the award-winning work of East Liberty-based Sojourner House — a six-month residential rehabilitation program for addicted mothers and their children — and hearing the inspiring stories from the families who have lived there. 

This year’s Pearl of Hope honoree is Kathy Froehle, Senior Business Strategist, Associate Vice President and Federated Investors. Maris Bondi, Senior Manager, Marketing Operations and Charitable Giving at UPMC, is serving as this year’s Honorary Chair. Sojourner House board member Lynne Chadwick is event chairperson.
