Tullis-Toledano to host croquet, afternoon tea Sunday

Biloxi’s Tullis-Toledano Manor will step back in time Sunday afternoon when the beachfront property hosts its second annual Afternoon Tea and Croquet Tournament to raise money for the restoration of the Crawford House.

The public is invited to the event, which takes place from 2 to 4 p.m.

About 24 players, many dressed in “croquet whites,” are expected to participate in the tournament, and dozens of spectators will be enjoying tea and cheering from the galleries during the affair.

Last year’s champion, Bruce Stewart of the Kiwanis Club, will be on hand to defend his title, and Biloxi Mayor A.J. Holloway is scheduled to participate.

Renowned artist Frank Janca plans to sketch activities during the afternoon.
