Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's):

How much do tickets cost?

Ticket prices are $10 per person plus the Eventbrite fee if purchased by April 23rd. After April 23rd, the price will go up to $13 per person plus the Eventbrite fee. No tickets will be sold at the door and there won't be any refunds after April 26th

Can I bring my other children, Grandparents or special friends to this event?

No. The maximum number of people from your family is three...your graduate and up to two parents or guardians (no substitutions please).

Due to size restrictions, budget considerations, and this event being a smaller one (unlike the Saturday night Deerfield dinner dance which is much larger), we are unable to accommodate any exceptions.

Siblings and grandparents are welcome to join the party at 9:00 pm for dessert. (please no earlier than 9:00 pm since the caterers will be cleaning up from dinner and setting up for dessert).
