Community Enjoys Wild West Tea and Golden Age Theater to Benefit the Clearwater Free Clinic
Even Wild West rivals put down their pistols to benefit the Clearwater Free Clinic at the 2nd Annual Fort Harrison Charity Tea Party.
Clearwater, FL (I-Newswire) February 17, 2014 - On the 9th of February, Clearwater's historic Fort Harrison hosted their 2nd Annual Charity Tea Party. 120 people attended and were treated to a three-course tea, live entertainment and a performance of the L. Ron Hubbard Western classic "When Gilhooly Was in Flower."
Approximately $1,000 was raised for the Clearwater Free Clinic's Pediatric Program via donations at the door and the sales of raffle tickets. The Clinic, which was founded in 1977, provides free or low-cost health care to those who make too much to qualify for government assistance, but who don't make enough to afford health insurance.
The event was held in the Auditorium of the Fort Harrison. Upon arrival, guests were invited to have their portraits taken at the Wild West photo backdrop. There was also a "Root Beer Bar" and interaction with the cast of the show.
After a full-service afternoon tea that included cornmeal-sage scones and chipotle chicken salad, a multi-cast dramatic reading of L. Ron Hubbard's "When Gilhooly Was in Flower" was presented. Originally published in 1938, "Gilhooly" is a classic Western romance with a clueless cowboy (Jigsaw Gilhooly) trying to win the hand of his true love. When a ruthless sheep rancher and his henchmen intervene, Gilhooly must save the day.
"Westerns were only one of the many genres that Mr. Hubbard wrote in," said Linda Aldrete, the Florida representative for Author Services, Inc. - the literary agents who exclusively represent the work of Mr. Hubbard. "By the end of the '40s, Mr. Hubbard was one of the most loved and broadly read authors of the pulp fiction era, with more than 15 million words in print. He wrote mysteries, suspense, action, far-flung adventure stories and even romances."
It was this work, added Ms. Aldrete, that funded Hubbard's research into what would culminate in Dianetics and Scientology.
The Church of Scientology's properties in Clearwater are the international spiritual headquarters for the Church. The Fort Harrison, a social and cultural hub for the community for the past 87 years is available for charitable groups for their fundraisers, events and meetings.
