Dozens of people put on fancy hats for a tea party Saturday afternoon in Waynesboro. It was the second annual High Tea fundraiser for the Waynesboro Area Learning Tree - or "WALT."

Guests wore their finest attire and enjoyed live music. The money raised will help buy computers and other supplies for the technology center.

"Funds also go toward developing new programs, things of that nature, to reach out to everyone from youth to older adults who need technology training," said Abena Foreman of the Waynesboro Area Learning Tree.

Organizers say the high tea event is about more than just raising money - it's also a way to showcase local talent.
