Revelstoke’s warmhearted women turned out by the score on Sunday for a special fund-raising event — the Tea for an Angel at the Revelstoke Museum & Archives.
The tea was held to raise money to help pay for the special enclosure needed to protect the Angel of Hope statue at Woodenhead Park from the jerks who have vandalized it several times since it was erected — most recently this past Monday.
“I simply don’t understand people who do that,” said Cheryl Wolgram whose daughter, Brianne, is commemorated by the statue. “They tore it right off the pedestal and broke more of the (already damaged) wing off. I’ve taken her home where she’ll be safe until she can be repaired and placed inside the enclosure.”
However, Cheryl refused to be disheartened during what proved to be a marvelous event at the museum.
About 100 women attended the tea and raised more than $1,157 to help pay for the enclosure.
