Are children invited to the event?

This is an adults only event. Good news, we've secured two Kids Night babysitting options. They include Create, Mix and Mingle and rec room creative. rec room creative is owned by College Park parent, Jen Quan.

**Please note that Create Mix & Mingle also hosts adult paint and sip parties, which could be held the same evening. Kids night will be hosted in a separate area with no adults allowed.

What is the format of the event?

In addition to a great silent and live auction, the gala will include great food and an open bar (featuring select wine varietals, soju bar, italian sodas, etc.). We will also have a DJ so come prepared to dance and have a fun time!

What should I wear?

Cocktail attire.

What kind of seating will be available at the event?

Tables of ten can be reserved and is recommended to ensure you sit with whom you like. Individual ticket holders may make requests and we will do our best to accommodate, however no guarantees can be made.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

No ID requirement. Please note this is an adults-only event. We encourage families to put together playdates or find other childcare options so that you may enjoy an evening out.

Is parking available?

Yes, free parking is available onsite and nearby.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. Purchasing your ticket here confirms your registration for the event.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Please call/text 650-200-3350 or e-mail if you plan to send someone else in your place for the actual event.

Is my donation tax-deductible?

All or part of your gift may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Please check with your tax advisor. Whether goods or services were provided in exchange for your generous donation may impact what may be claimed as tax-deductible. Please note that in some cases, items like program book ads may also be written off as business or advertising expenses. Again - it is always best to check with your tax advisor for guidance.

I'd like my company to match my donation - what's the best way to do this?

For your convenience, you have the option to make an online donation via Eventbrite. Please note that there are two types of fees charged by eventbrite for this purpose: Eventbrite fees (2% nonprofit rate plus $0.99 per ticket) + credit card fees (3% of ticket value). Please check out the "Donations" page of the FMS website to learn more about how to donate to FMS, including a link to corporations we know that will match donations to FMS. Typically the corporate matching information is available through your Human Resources or Community Relations departments. Our EIN/Tax ID is 45-2465260. The mailing address is PO Box 123, San Mateo, CA 94401, and the primary contact should be Yining Wang, FMS Board Chair. We can provide a detailed acknowledgement letter via e-mail or mail upon request.
