All are invited to join us for High Tea at Cowtown, a fundraiser with a silent auction, at the Old Cowtown Museum visitor center which has a spacious hall with a beautiful patio. Tickets are required.

Suffragist-era attire is encouraged but not at all compulsory. We want to enjoy each other’s company while supporting the League’s ongoing efforts by raising the funds we need for our work. All attendees will receive a commemorative teacup and saucer. Secure your tickets for our June 27 fundraiser by making a donation of $20 per person. The deadline for tickets is June 18th so we can ensure we’ll have enough volunteers, provisions, etc. for everyone. No tickets will be sold at the door. The Cowtown visitor center is located at 1865 Museum Boulevard in Wichita.

If you have something fabulous to donate for the silent auction, please email Jennifer Byers Heminway at or Leanne Chase at So far we have received a Richard Crowson signed original, bowls from acclaimed potter Jack Norris, a gorgeous quilt, a variety of gift baskets and some suffragist memorabilia to name but a few items.

When you pay with PayPal, use the “other amount” field to enter the amount you intend to donate (at least $20 for each ticket), and on the next screen please leave a note that clarifies the number of tickets you are needing. Make sure you include your name and contact information with the transaction.

Note that a PayPal account is NOT required to pay online. 

After clicking the “Donate” button below, you can make a donation for your tickets by simply selecting “Donate with a Debit or Credit Card” to make your donation without creating or logging into a PayPal account (see images).



Alternatively, send a donation by mail to secure your tickets. Include a note that clarifies the number of tickets you are needing, and make sure you include your name and contact information, and mail it with payment to the address below.
