Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When do I need to buy tickets?

Tickets must be purchased in advance. By purchasing ahead of time, you guarantee yourself a spot and you help us gauge how many people to plan for.

Q: What is the proper attire for the event?

Semi-Formal or Cocktail Attire

Q: What do I need to bring to the Gala?

Other than yourself, you will probably want cash or a checkbook with you. There is an ATM on the premisis. Potential uses for cash include the full bar (We provide complimentary wine the entire night, as well as a cash-only full bar), and auction purchases.

Q: Can I walk up and purchase a ticket at the event without having pre-purchased a ticket?

We strongly encourage you to purchase tickets well in advance either through the website or by contacting us directly. This is both for your benefit, because our gala has sold out in several times in the past, and also for our benefit so that we can plan on how many guests we will have. We can take some additional Gala guests but only up to a certain amount, as we will only have food enough to feed a pre-determined amount of guests. Again, the best way for both you and us is to purchase them well in advance, and we thank you for working with us on this.

Q: What are some of the items up for bid in the Silent Auction?

We don't divide up what's used for a Silent Auction, raffle, or prizes until a couple of days before the event. You may contact us for a list of items close to the date of the event if you would like to get more details.

Q: What’s in the Live Auction?

We usually have a few really nice items in the live auction. We always auction off a seat at the final table.

Q: What is in the Gift Bag?

We have Event T-shirts and other great free stuff for you, some of which is provided by our generous sponsors, so be sure to grab one on your way out!

Q: How old do you have to be to attend?

We don’t have a set age, but please keep in mind that while our Event benefits kids, this is an adult-oriented event. We would just ask parents to use their own judgement and only enter a maturity-appropriate player.

Q: What if I can’t make that date, but I still want to help?

A great way to help is to donate online, volunteer, or become a sponsor! Just visit our How You Can Help page for more details! In addition, we always need help spreading the word about the event and gathering prizes and auction items.
