A benefit for the ongoing restoration of the Wyeth/Tootle Mansion, this year's party will feature an oriental salad luncheon, party favors, and plenty of time for guests to play Mah Jongg.

Mah Jongg (also spelled Mahjong or Mah-Jong) is a game of Chinese origin that was extremely popular in the mid-1920s. It was still a common pastime in 1927 when the St. Joseph Museum was founded. The game was introduced to Americans in 1920 by Joseph P. Babcock, an American resident of Shanghai. By 1923, Mah Jongg sets ranked sixth in the list of items imported from Shanghai into the United States.
