FIESTA 2016
This event wouldn't be a success without the help of our countless Alumnae!

There are many ways you can help make FIESTA 2016, "A League of Their Own," a success: 
  • Advertise in the 2016 Catalog and help your business find new customers.
  • Attend the event! FIESTA 2016 is on Saturday, February 20. Tickets are $75 for an alumna. You may also purchase one more ticket at this reduced rate for a guest.
  • Buy a $100 raffle ticket for the $10,000 raffle drawing.  An Alum WON last year! 
  • Call ten of your friends and buy a table--show Mercy that your class has spirit!
  • Donate an item for our live auction! We love putting packages together (do you have a vacation home, tickets to an event or airline miles?) 
  • Donate bottles of wine, gift baskets or silent auction gifts! 
  • Send an underwriting donation and help purchase a reservation for a Sister of Mercy or faculty member.
Mark your calendars to celebrate FIESTA on Saturday February 20, 2016, at the Embassy Suites in La Vista!
