Frankie’s Friends invites you to join us for the second annual Mad Hatters Tea & Brunch presented by the DeBartolo family, while wearing your best wild and wonderful over-the-top hat as you dine at Eddie V’s Prime Seafood.  Enjoy a delectable brunch while helping to save the lives of pets in Tampa Bay. 


The event will feature an enticing bubbly reception, bloody mary bar, interactive brunch buffet and of course tea! Guests will bid on a variety of unique silent & live auction items all to help save the lives of pets in need. For even more fun and entertainment during the event, our celebrity judges will evaluate the guest’s hats in a variety of categories with the winners announced at the conclusion of the brunch.
