Please join the Villa Joseph Marie community on Sunday, October 16, 2016, for one of its most treasured traditions, the Mother-Daughter Tea. This event is the Parents’ Guild's annual fall fundraiser and is hosted by the Sophomore Class. All proceeds raised at the Tea will be used for necessary upgrades and capital investments in the school.

The Tea includes two time-honored traditions, a tribute from Senior Class members to their mothers, and the always popular fashion show, featuring the Sophomore Class modeling the latest in formal attire provided by Dress Up Time (located in Northeast Philadelphia at 7240 Frankford Avenue).

A professional photographer will be onsite to capture formal pictures on this special day! An order form will be emailed as the date moves closer and will be available online as well as on the day of the event.

Our guests will have the opportunity to win fabulous prizes donated and sourced by our Villa community. Raffle tickets will be available online and at the Tea for $10/per ticket or 3 tickets for $25.
