2021 First Lady's Tea
Sunday, May 2, 2 PM
Due to the threat of inclement weather, ALL seating for the First Lady's Tea has been moved INSIDE the Janet Huckabee Grand Hall. In order to accommodate all ticket holders, 10 (ten) guests will now be seated at each table inside the Grand Hall. If you or your guests have concerns regarding these seating arrangements and choose not to attend, you may either designate your ticket purchase as a tax-deductible donation to the Mansion Association OR request a refund by emailing Sharon Morris at , or call 501-324-9805.
Although the weather may not be cooperating, we are still busy planning a fabulous event for everyone with delicious food, carriage rides (weather permitting) and visits by Miss Arkansas and Alice in Wonderland. It's going to be a fun afternoon at the Arkansas Governor's Mansion!
The Arkansas Governor's Mansion Association is a 501c3 non-profit organization that raises funds for the restoration and preservation of the Arkansas Governor's Mansion.
The association is operated by a group of involved citizens from across the state who are nominated and voted on by the Association to serve a two-year term. It is an independent organization that relies on the contributions of the general public to address the day-to-day needs of the Mansion.
The Arkansas Governor's Mansion has long been more than just a home to our state's leaders. It is also our state's front door, welcoming visitors and dignitaries from all over the world.
