What is the Phantom Tea?
In 2007, we held our first ever Phantom Tea fundraiser. The response was overwhelming!
Over the past five years, FIRST has been fortunate enough to receive the support of our members and their contacts participating in our Phantom Tea event, raising an average of nearly $30,000 each year.
This year we need your help again to provide everyday services to those affected by ichthyosis. If you haven't sent in your reply card, save a stamp

Ideas for a successful Phantom Tea Party
First of all, select the type of Tea Party you’d like
- A “virtual” tea party
- Traditional “hot tea” party
- A nice “iced tea” party
- A “Long Island Iced Tea” party
Next, select the location of the Tea Party
- In the comfort of your home
- In your dining room or living room served in your fine china
- Out on your deck or patio during a beautiful sunny, Spring day
- In your warm and welcoming home
Finally, invite all of your family and friends to enjoy some tea.
The bottom line is that it doesn’t matter where or when you bring your family and friends. What matters is that you gather people together to celebrate the special person, with ichthyosis, in your life and then send in a donation for Foundation for Ichthyosis & Related Skin Types, Inc.™ (FIRST). For more details about participating in the Phantom Tea, click here.

The FIRST staff will quickly send these out to you. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Christine Wassel, Development Coordinator.
Remember the #1 reason people do not give is because they are not asked.
