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 alumnaeoffice@mhsmi.org 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.
