QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Drinking some tea and supporting families was all present at the annual Quincy Young Lives Little Ladies Tea Party. 

The event raises money to send teen mom's and their babies to a summer camp in Michigan this year.

Organizers said it's a life changing event that does a lot for young women in the community.

The goal was to raise $11,000 Sunday  but organizers said you can't put a price tag on this experience. 

"We accomplish more together in five days in camp than we do in nine months of programming," Dana Caley, YoungLives Coordinator said. "So it's a fun trip and we also go through hard stuff together and form bonds that really we couldn't have without doing that."

More than 150 people were at the event.

Quincy Young Lives is a ministry based mentor program that offers guidance in faith, parenting and self-worth.
