Pre-Tea Time is from 12:30 until 1 p.m., where registrants can enjoy the wonderful music of Brazilian jazz singer Kenia, while viewing photos of Sojourner House events during the past year, AS WELL AS photos of registrants wearing tea hats and fascinators! Then, starting at 1 p.m., emcee and award-winning journalist Brian Cook will host a one-hour program highlighting the award-winning work of Sojourner House and Sojourner House MOMS.

This year's Honorary Chair Leah Lizarondo, CEO and Co-Founder of 412 Food Rescue. Chatham University's Words Without Walls creative writing program will be this year's Pearl of Hope Awardee.
