Psychic TeaPSYCHIC TEA  

Fundraiser at the Historic Hermitage in Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ

Sunday Oct 1 from 1-4 PM

I’ll be kicking off my October events at one of my favorite historic haunts, the Hermitage. This is a fundraiser for this historic property with part of the proceeds going directly to the Hermitage.

One hundred years ago, Bess and Mary Elizabeth Rosencrantz started the tradition of entertaining travelers in their historic Ho-Ho-Kus home. Aunt Bess and her niece Mary Elizabeth hosted “Tea with Ghosts” during which passersby would be treated to a light lunch, High Tea and stories of ghosts who inhabited the old mansion. Newspaper headlines read “Ghost House Becomes a Popular Tea Resort” and the tea became a huge financial success for the Rosencrantz family and continued at the house for over a decade.

One hundred years later, we have revived the old tea with a new twist. Instead of talking about the ghosts, we will be talking to them. In this case, I will be channeling the spirits of family members and friends of those present. I can’t say for sure if Aunt Bess and Mary Elizabeth will be joining us, but you can never tell, as they do love a good ghost story!

For the High Tea portion of the event we have gone right to the experts. Anyone who has ever visited Sally Lunn’s Tea Shop in Chester, NJ knows they offer one of the best High Teas in the state! Sally Lunn’s will be catering a fabulous High Tea served buffet style to allow you to enjoy your High Tea just the way you want. After the tea I will channel for about two hours, moving around the room to wherever I sense spirits wanting to communicate.

As part of this special fundraiser to raise monies for the historic Hermitage, the main house will be open to tour an hour prior to the start of our event. The event itself will be held across the lawn at Jacqua Hall. Please get some friends and family members together to help us raise needed funds for one of the state’s most historic landmarks, the Hermitage.

Tickets are $100 per person which includes the house tour, High Tea and Channeling. Part of the proceeds for this event go to help maintain the Historic Hermitage site. You will have a great time AND you’re helping to save a valuable piece of our history for future generations!

at Capone’s in Tom’s River, NJ

Thursday Night October 5 at 6 PM

To accommodate those in South Jersey, I will be doing another Channeling Dinner at Capone’s Restaurant at 17 Washington Street Toms River, NJ on Thursday night October 5, at 6 PM.

I love the history in this part of Toms River, and Capone’s has a great banquet room that is the perfect venue for this type of event. A delicious Italian buffet dinner will be served starting at 6 PM. After dinner, I will walk around the room and channel for the group. I cannot channel for every person and do not promise to get to every table, but I will try to read as many energies coming through as I can during the two hours channeling session. Gather up your friends and family (here and on the Other Side) and join me for a spirited night of channeling at Capone’s!

Tickets are $60 per person (plus tax & gratuity) must be purchased in advanced by calling the restaurant at 732-604-3507.
