‘Tea with a Purpose’ supports ministry for sex trafficking victims

Community members are coming together for “Tea with a Purpose” at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20 at Faith Baptist Church, 7652 Old Olympic Highway.

Christine Gilge, Adorned in Grace Tacoma director, discusses the nonprofit ministry that supports survivors of sex trafficking with workshops, retreats, skill training, tutoring, mentoring, and more.

The program sells bridal and special occasion dresses to fund the program at 3104 S. Union Ave., in Tacoma.

This is the first time the church has hosted the program with seats available for up to 90 people. The event also features a silent auction with donations supporting the program.

Co-organizer Jeanette Gish said the purpose of this event is to help spread awareness that sex trafficking is happening in and around the Seattle area.

Tickets to the event are $12 each and can be purchased online at eventbrite.com, at Port Book & News in Port Angeles, Joyful Noise Music Center in Sequim, or at the door.
