Margaret "Molly" Brown was one of the few survivors of the infamous Titanic after it hit an iceberg and sank in 1912. It earned her the nickname, “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.” A Broadway musical and movie were made years later, both with that moniker. But she was best known as an activist who fought for changes in miner’s rights, child protection, and animal welfare. The Denver house in which she lived was built in 1889 and 81 years later it was going to be demolished. A preservation group known as Historic Denver banded together to save it and restore it. Today, it’s the Molly Brown House Museum, which features 45-minute guided tours where you can learn all about Ms. Brown’s life and the history of Denver. The Museum is also dedicated to continuing her memory through a wide array of programs and exhibits.
One of those programs is the “Making a Difference Tea” on Saturday, September 13, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. An actress portraying Ms. Brown will talk about her passion for giving back to the community. If you’re in attendance, you’ll be encouraged to talk about how they make a difference in their world (so you better start thinking about it). As the name of the program implies, tea will be served. Afterwards, you’ll be taken on a tour of the Museum. The “Making a Difference Tea” is $20.00 per person and designed for ages 12 and older.
