Tea Time in the Park: Alice in Wonderland at Evelyn’s Park
On April 12, Evelyn’s Park Conservancy hosted a “Celebrate, Savor & See" to reveal the newest addition to the park - the Move One Place On sculpture that honors the Rubenstein family matriarch, Evelyn. More than 100 guests gathered to celebrate the sculpture created by local artist Bridgette Mongeon. Park patrons will enjoy sitting on the three benches, part of the sculpture, one of which includes a built-in chessboard. The larger-than-life tea party sculpture includes a nine-foot Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the Cheshire Cat and, of course, Alice.
During the festivities, guests toasted with champagne and Saint Arnold beer, enjoyed music from Divisi Strings and nibbled on delicious food from Casetta Catering (who also created a custom cookie depicting the tea party from Alice in Wonderland), scones from McHugh Tea and desserts courtesy of Mostly Chocolate & Catering, Nothing Bundt Cakes, and The Ivy and James.
Guests enjoying Wonderland included Evelyn’s Park President Patricia King-Ritter, board members Debbie Lapin, Terry-Leavitt-Chavez, Suzi Weinstock and Brad Sondock; Bellaire City Council members Michael Fife, David Montague, Trisha Pollard and Pat McLaughlan; former Bellaire Mayor Cindy Siegel, Linda and Jerry Rubenstein, Rikki and Bo Rubenstein, Tawnya and Rusty Rubenstein, Marsha and Keith Rubenstein, Randi and Scott Rubenstein, Jason Rubenstein, Carolyn Rubenstein, Greg Lerner and Russ Pittman.
Evelyn’s Park invites the public to join in their one-year anniversary celebration with a picnic in the park and Earth Day celebration on Sat., April 21.
