2023 Tea for Tuition
Sunday, April 30, 2023
Mercy HS Gymnasium
Sign up to be a Table Hostess and bring others to Mercy for this lovely tradition we call Tea for Tuition. A Table Hostess invites guests to the event, and she sets and decorates her table. The Tea is a true Mercy community event; alumnae, mothers, staff and friends are all invited to participate. Mercy students will be your table servers.
What will I do as a Table Hostess?
  • Invite up to 7 guests for a table of 8. Don’t forget yourself in the count! $300 per table or $325 for a table to include Mercy Mosas.
  • Set and decorate a 72-inch round table. Mercy provides a white tablecloth.
  • Communicate event information to your guests, so that they are aware of all the great components! See Table Hostess Tool Kit for more information.
  • Send your guests’ names to Mercy.
How do I sign up?
Your Guest List
  • Invite your friends, family, clients, neighbors and more…everyone is welcome at Mercy! You and your guests will enjoy inspiring stories from students who benefit from the Tuition Assistance Program.
Tea Party Highlights
  • Delicious tea party food and dessert – along with enticing hot and cold teas – all served by Mercy students who will take good care of your table.
  • Visiting with old friends, making new connections, hearing from remarkable women of Mercy, and browsing the lovely table settings. The gym is transformed into a tea parlor!
  • Of special note will be the presentation of the Distinguished Alumna Award and Trailblazer Alumna Award.
  • And since the event is a fundraiser to support the Alumnae Association Tuition Assistance Fund, the afternoon features silent auction and raffle items, as well as an opportunity to make a gift to Mercy.

This will include one bottle of sparkling wine and a pitcher of orange juice for the table. When choosing this option, the hostess will be responsible for bringing drinkware for your guests.
