Invite your friends, family and colleagues to Tea!

You can become 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.

Table Hostess Commitment

Please read the following points before submitting your table hostess deposit.

What does a Table Hostess Do?

  • Commits to filling a table of 8-10 guests. We encourage you to fill all 10 seats, as we are aiming to share Mercy spirit with as many guests as possible. Don’t forget to include yourself in the count.
  • Sets and decorates a 72-inch round table. Mercy provides a white tablecloth.
  • Collects payment from all guests at her table and submits final payment to Mercy by April 4. Seats are $25 per person; the $50 deposit covers two seats.
  • Lets Mercy know the names of guests ahead of time.
  • Touches base with her guests prior to the event to communicate important event information.

See Table Hostess Tool Kit for more information.

Your Guest List

  • Invite your friends, family, clients, neighbors and more…everyone is welcome at Mercy! You and your guests will enjoy inspiring stories of “The Mercy Difference.”

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 you and your guests.
  • 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 Distinguished Alumna Award Presentation to Sheri Johnson Crawley '90.
  • 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.
  • Over the past 12 years, the event has raised over $190,000 to help more than 100 Mercy girls in need of financial assistance.

How to sign up as a Table Hostess

Now that I am a Table Hostess, what do I do next?

  • Once you are registered as a Table Hostess, you'll receive a confirmation email.
  • We will send you regular updates with all the materials you need to invite, remind, and thank your guests.
  • Please send names of your guests to by April 4. Due dates are earlier than normal this year due to how Easter break falls on the calendar. Final payment is also due April 4.
