February 11th @ 6:00pm
Based on feedback that we received from registration day for our December dance, we are making some changes to how tickets are purchased to allow more equity in ticket distribution.
- The maximum number of tickets that you will be able to purchase is 4.
- Everyone who buys a ticket will have an assigned table, which they themselves will select at the time of purchase.
If you have questions about these changes, please stop by our front desk for more clarification.
Tickets will go on sale Tuesday, January 17th
