Legacy of Love Tea Fundraiser


You love big. How do you make that your legacy?

Join us for an evening tea with friends and much inspiration. 

Amidst the ambiance of violins playing, and the breathtaking view of downtown Raleigh as our backdrop, we invite you to join us for the delightful tradition of evening tea. You will experience a formal tea service, including tea sandwiches, delectable scones with jam, a selection of sweets, an assortment of tea served in fine china, beautiful linens, and gorgeous fresh flower centerpieces with pearls.

Our friend and Bible teacher Heather M. Dixon will speak on leaving a legacy of love. Also expect to hear from our Director and Founder, Cary Heise, and explore opportunities to support the ongoing mission of DFJ and some shopping of course!

“Scottish Grace’s tea service made me feel like royalty. I felt special and pampered. It was a moment where I could exhale and enjoy the rich tea, delicious scones, fine china, and beautiful linens.” Kristen Sydow, DFJ Co-Founder and Designer

Your ticket is 100% a donation to Designed For Joy. This event is given in memory of DFJ Board Member Krista Martin's father Douglas T. Evans. "A man who cherished his family, had a deep faith, and a strong sense of service to others. His unconditional love, wit, and wisdom is with me every day.”
