NOTICE REGARDING EARLY PICKUP OF TICKETS - ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ!

Remember to read events carefully.  If there is no early pickup mentioned on the Event (and most times there are not!), then please do not contact the Box Office to ask about picking up tickets early.  The Box Office is already swamped with paying customers in the days before an event and cannot always make time to print up individual comp tickets for non-profits. That's why we send the guest lists!  We don't want to jeopardize our relationship with our venues, so please follow this request!  Thank you!

 

PLEASE CHECK YOUR PROFILE ON OUR WEBSITE AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A VALID MAILING ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER.  JUST LOGIN ON THE EVENT TAB AND CLICK AT THE TOP RIGHT WHERE IT SAYS WELCOME.
