Normally $100, the cost for a 2019 GMercyU graduating student is half price. After the first 50 graduating students purchase tickets, prices will increase to $70. Tickets include entrance and a sunset cruise on the Spirit of Philadelphia, dinner buffet, 2 drink tickets (followed by cash bar) and DJ.
