We are excited to extend our beloved Afternoon Tea tradition to the young and young-at-heart at “Imagine Tea.”
Imagine Tea is designed especially for children and will feature a remarkable touch of magic. As part of the experience, members of the Junior Program of the Academy of Magical Arts will be on-hand to entertain young tea guests, performing close-up magic while children dine on a specialty tea menu of magically-decorated cookies, ham, turkey and PB & J sandwiches and whimsical desserts, all accompanied by pink lemonade, milk and a selection of fruit-infused, caffeine-free teas.
Young tea guests will also have the opportunity to make their own magic during the tea, as they are invited to attend dressed as whichever character, person or animal most appeals to their imagination.
The next Imagine Tea is scheduled for June 4, 2017, with seatings presented at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. This event will benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, which raise funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals that provide 32 million treatments each year to kids across the U.S. and Canada. Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time through the charity’s Miracle Balloon icon. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. Find out why children’s hospitals need community support, identify your member hospital and learn how you can Put Your Money Where the Miracles Are, at CMNHospitals.org and facebook.com/CMNHospitals.
Our event on September 17 will benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF). ALSF emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $140 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 690 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.

Imagine Tea is priced at $48 for adults and $36 for children 12 and under.* Reservations are required and may be requested at 626-585-6218.
Imagine Tea at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena is part of a family-oriented partnership created between the hotel and the Junior Program of the Academy of Magical Arts. Presented quarterly, each Imagine Tea also benefits a local children’s non-profit organization. The Langham Huntington, Pasadena will donate a portion of each tea date’s proceeds to such charities. The organization will also receive its own table at each seating of the tea, with the ability to bring their own special guests to the event.
