Lawrence radio personalities Bob Davis and Bob Newton are scheduled to attend the sixth annual "Chocolate and Tea at Three" from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Free State High School commons area, 4700 Overland Drive.

Tickets cost $25 and can be purchased at the community shelter, 214 W. 10th St., or by calling 832-8864. They also can be purchased at the door.

The event will include silent and live auctions with several items up for bidding, including a family dinner and tour of a fire station with Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical workers.
