Tea Party Brings Comfort to Children in Need


Commissioner Lonnie Talbert joined forces with Presbyterian Pediatric Oncology to bring an “Ella Tea Party” to support cancer-fighting children in Bernalillo County.

Eight children attended the first annual Ella Tea Party event in October at The St. James Tearoom in Albuquerque. Tea and snacks were provided to the attendees, and the children enjoyed a reading of Adventures of BernCo Bernie.

Ella is a friend of Barbie in the Mattel, Inc. line of toys, who visits cancer-fighting children across the country. Each child received an Ella doll and wig from Mattel, Inc., and a BernCo Bernie bag with both Bernie books and other branded souvenirs.

Residents interested in contributing to future events may contact Dr. Beeling Armijo of Presbyterian Health Services at (505) 563-6530 or by email to mbarmijo5@phs.org.
