Although the event was initially rescheduled due to rain, the Mad Hatter Fundraiser at Lompico Park successfully raised about $200 to cover continued park maintenance & expenses such as electricity, water, insurance, graffiti removal, trash disposal, vending machine repairs and porta-potty cleaning fees.
This whimsical spring event was themed after the classic movie Alice in Wonderland with hand made decorations by Christie Herting. Along with Pete's Coffee, Earl Grey & Ginger Tea were sodas, hot dogs, home made vegetarian chili, chips & other treats. Activities included music, a cake walk, cupcake decorating, a themed photo booth, a raffle and private showing of the movie Alice in Wonderland. Raffle items included donated top hats, Santa Cruz Mountain Clothing t-shirts & hats, art & sculpture from local artists, spa gift certificates from Spa Santagelo in Felton and gift cards for Amazon and Safeway.
