Press Release: CRC’s 27th Annual Tea Fundraiser

Community Resource Center’s 27th Annual Tea Fundraiser

Tea by the Sea to be held in person after two years of virtual event to benefit domestic violence and other services

Encinitas, Calif. – March 14, 2022 – Community Resource Center (CRC) will host the 27th Annual tea fundraiser, Tea by the Sea, on April 23 from 1:30-4pm at the Encinitas Community Center (1140 Oakcrest Park Dr, Encinitas, CA 92024). The event benefits CRC’s domestic violence program as well as all their wraparound services that provide food, housing, counseling and legal advocacy to those who are experiencing hunger, homelessness or hurt in our community.

“Hosting a virtual tea fundraiser for the last two years was necessary and it was also challenging, because we missed the community and energy of being together in person,” said John Van Cleef, CEO of CRC. “Now think about people who endured the last two years while also experiencing domestic violence, homelessness or hunger. These are our neighbors in need we are coming together to support this year.”

To support CRC’s programs that help people create paths to healthy food, stable homes and safe relationships, the event will feature a silent auction, raffle, afternoon tea service and a short program featuring a presentation by Summer Stephan, San Diego County District Attorney. Some of the auction and raffle items include Golf and brunch for four at The Crossings at Carlsbad, one-night stay at the Lakehouse Hotel & Resort, tickets to the Moonlight Amphitheatre and restaurant and shopping gift certificates. Individual tickets are $125 and registration closes April 20, 2022. To purchase tickets or learn more visit
