How much is it worth to keep a Teresan presence on our campus?
In June 2013, the Alumnae Association assumed the lease and maintenance responsibilities for the Tea House. We all owe a debt of gratitude to the alumnae who saved the building from the wrecking-ball and restored it beautifully 18 years ago.
However, our Tea House is starting to show it’s age again! Many repairs are urgently needed. WE NEED YOUR HELP TO RAISE $45,000 to keep the building safe and operational. Keep a Teresan presence on campus for years to come.
Can you help pay for one of the items below? Or can you make a contribution toward one of these projects? A gift of any size is welcome — and is 100% TAX-DEDUCTABLE!
