Tea for Tuition 2012

Did you know that the Tea for Tuition has provided nearly $85,000 in tuition assistance for more than 75 Mercy students? It's all because of the generosity of gracious Mercy women.

The 8th Annual Alumnae Association Tea for Tuition was held April 29th at Mercy High School. A glorious afternoon Victorian Tea Party was held in the decorated gymnasium complete with Tearoom treats, salads and desserts. THANK YOU for helping Tea for Tuition 2012 raise more than $18,000 for tuition assistance. The event saw a 95% increase in number of donors and a 113% increase in donations!

Congratulations to the 2012 Distinguished Alumna The Honorable Diane Dickow D’Agostini ’80 Chief Judge, 48th District Court Oakland County, Michigan.
