Q.) Will you have any vegan/vegetarian food options?
A.) We'll have an amazing food selection, including salad options and fruit platters. Please do keep in mind this is a Caribbean event, and the food selection will reflect that. Thanks for understanding.

Q.) Is this event for Singles only?
A.) The 6th Annual Caribbean Extravaganza is a fundraiser. Anyone, single, married, student, etc., should feel free to attend the event.


Q.) Are you coordinating housing for those coming from out of town?
A.) Our planning team is focusing our full attention on our fundraising efforts and preparing an amazing event for those who will be participating. You should feel free to reach out to anyone you know in Philadelphia you'd like to stay with, including members of the Greater Philadelphia Church of Christ; however, our team is not coordinating housing for those who will be coming in from out of town. Please plan accordingly. Thanks for understanding.


Q.) Is there a suggested attire?
A.) The 6th Annual Caribbean Extravaganza is a celebration of Caribbean culture. As such, African and Caribbean attire are welcomed and encouraged. Also, feel free to wear the colors of your country, or another country of interest. Whatever you decide to wear, be comfortable, look good, and plan on having a good time in whatever you came in!


Q.) Do you have a refund policy?
A.) Our team does not do refunds. Thanks for understanding. Instead, in the past, we've either transferred the ticket to another individual (perhaps a friend, roommate, family member, etc.), OR we've identified someone interested in purchasing the ticket. Given the volume we generally experience for ticket sales, identifying a buyer, in the event you can no longer attend, is generally a pretty seamless task, although depending on how close it is to the event, you may have to be flexible on the price you sell it at.
