  • Blend in with the scenery of the event by wearing a foolishly fun hat. Be inspired by your favorite character from Alice in Wonderland or create a hat of your own imagination! Optional, but strongly encouraged. After all, what’s a mad tea party without a hatter?
  • Don’t forget about our charitable mission, bring a donation of a personal care product
  • For every donation of a full size personal care product you bring you will receive one raffle ticket! 10 donations = 10 raffle tickets! Items most in need: feminine care products, toothpaste, deodorant, razors and lotion.
  • This is an 18+ event
  • All proceeds benefit Amenity Aid: A small volunteer-run charity, we depend on the proceeds of our annual event to buy hygiene products for shelters and other organizations we support. While we receive a generous amount of product donations, we would not be able to supply the level of donations needed to keep up with the demand we are facing without buying products.
  • We support ten organizations throughout Rhode Island:
  • Crossroads Rhode Island
  • Operation Stand Down Rhode Island
  • House of Hope CDC
  • Welcome House of South County
  • Sojourner House
  • Amos House
  • WARM Center
  • Lucy’s Hearth
  • Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center
  • North Kingstown Food Pantry
  • When these organizations are low on essential personal care products, they call us. Our ability to purchase items such as soap, shampoo, deodorant and feminine care products relies on the success of our one fundraiser each year.
