British Hollywood actress Victoria Summer will host her third British Tea Party for Teen Cancer America, for which she is a global ambassador, in association with Next Generation Role Model on Saturday 12th December – 8pm UK time. The live-streamed event will raise critical funds for TCA, the national non-profit co-founded by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who, providing facilities and support for adolescents and young adults with cancer.
Victoria Summer’s virtual Tea Party, which is fully vegan, will feature actress Lesley Nicol, who portrays the manor chef Mrs. Patmore on the BBC’s Emmy Award-winning series Downton Abbey, and performances by global music artist Sheryl Crow and acclaimed British tenor and Tony Award winner Alfie Boe.
This interactive event will also include a master class in making delicious vegan scones from scratch by Italian Michelin star chef Fabrizio Vaccaro. William Hanson, a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts and regarded as the UK’s most trusted authority on etiquette and civility, will also give a tea etiquette masterclass.
The preeminent tea purveyor and expert Lawrence Charles of Charles & Company (an organic luxury tea brand) will teach guests to make a tea-based cocktail. Charles is known for his collaborations with the James Beard Foundation, British Polo Day, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and the British Royal Family.
The work of TCA will be highlighted in a conversation between Victoria Summer and a young cancer survivor, who will share personal experiences and then sing a duet with the hostess. TCA’s mission is to improve the experience, outcomes, and survival of teens and young adults with cancer by providing programs and specialized facilities designed especially for them in hospitals throughout the U.S.
