We need YOU! The Merrie Market Gala & Auction will be held on March 2, 2019 and we need YOU to make the difference between an ordinary event and something EXTRAORDINARY for our students. Need ideas? Join us as an EVENT SPONSOR or check our WISH LIST.

Host a Party

Hosted Parties by Visitation Families are a fun way to contribute to the success of the Merrie Market Gala and Auction. These are, by far, one of our best-selling items. Merrie Market parties are also a great opportunity for you to get to know other Vis Families.

What are hosted parties? These are “sign-up” events that parents, or a group of parents, agree to host for as many people as they find appropriate for the specific activity/party. Attendees can be adults, kids or a combination of the two. The hosts cover all expenses of the party and 100 percent of the funds raised by the event benefit Visitation School. Prices range from $25 to $150 per person depending on the event, with most adult parties falling in the $50-$75 range and most kid parties in the $25-$50 range.

Parties can be as simple as a Wine & Cheese party, Class Pool Party or as elaborate as a Progressive Dinner hosted by multiple families. It’s up to you!
