The boxes were on display at the group's annual Garden Tea Party Basket Luncheon at Faith Presbyterian Church on March 10. Proceeds from the event fund ongoing projects for the hospital and Habitat for Humanity and charities such as the St. Giles Food Pantry, SPCA Tampa Bay and Decorative Artists' Education Foundation. Over 200 persons were in attendance.
