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 9 guests for a table maximum seating of 10. Don’t forget yourself in the count!
  • $350 per table not decorated. You set and decorate a 72-inch round table. Mercy provides a white tablecloth.
  • $500 per table if you want Mercy to decorate your table. You won't need to worry about bringing anything!
  • Communicate event information to your guests, so that they are aware of all the great components. See Table Hostess Tool Kit for more information.
