“’Tis also the season for owner Tracy Dueck to step out of the kitchen and add to the frivolity by sharing tips, a recipe and tasting of a favorite holiday baking delicacy,” said Ingrid Epp, The Reach’s director of development.

Proceeds from the celebration go to the 100 Days of The Reach campaign.

The Reach cares for more than 4,700 artifacts, and the 10th anniversary campaign gives the public an opportunity to select and sponsor one of these treasures for a $100 donation per artifact.

Locals Marg and Roy Warkentin are generously matching every dollar donated to this campaign up to $5,000.

Tickets for the Holly High Tea are $34 for Reach members and $36 for guests.

They are available online at or in person at The Reach, 32388 Veterans Way.
