Description

*****Please join us for a SPECIAL FUNDRAISING SALON for PUERTO RICO*****

Have you been thinking about contributing to Puerto Rico's recovery and rebuilding efforts after the Hurricanes Irma and Maria, and don't know where to send your money? Join us at the next Salon to find out how our storytellers have used technology to make anyone a donor for a cause that they are passionate about, with the comfort that their money is going to the right place. Their fabulous stories will inspire you to be a philanthropist, no matter how big or small your contribution is. We are delighted to partner with OpenGovHub, a space where transparency, community, and technology come together. They have generously offered their wonderful event space in downtown DC for this special fundraising Salon.

FAQs

Is this a women's only event?

Yes, this is a Storytelling Salon for WOMEN only. We have created a safe space for women to share their stories with each other. As important as it is for men to listen to these stories, we find that the storytelling process is different when it is in a mixed audience.

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

We would like to encourage guests 14 years and over to attend, especially if young women would like to attend with their mothers or older friends. No alcohol will be served to any guest below the age of 21.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

OpenGovHub is at 1110 Vermont Ave NW SUITE #500, Washington, DC 20005

Metro: McPherson Square (Blue, Red, Orange Lines), Metrocenter (Red Line)

Parking: Street Parking is limited. Uber or Lyft is highly recommended.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please send an email to info@womenstorytellingsalon.com

What do I get for my ticket?

Entrance to the Salon, small plate of tapas/small eats and drinks (red wine/white wine/soft drinks)

Why can't I buy my ticket at the door?

Check in has to be as efficient as possible to have everyone seated with food and drink in time for the storytelling. This is why tickets must be purchased online and we are also encouraging people to arrive as early as 5:45 to check in. This is also a great way to meet other women before the Salon begins.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

It is transferable, if you let the organizer know in advance (LATEST by 12 noon of the event day) of the event because there is NO refund for the ticket once you have bought it.

Can I update my registration information?

Please send the organizer an email message with any change of attendance if you are not able to update your registration information on Eventbrite.

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

We will have a list of guests who have registered at check-in, but it will be helpful to have a digital copy of your registration confirmation on your phone just in case your name is missing on our list.

What is the refund policy?

Unfortunately, we will not be able to process refunds if you are not able to make it to the event.

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

Yes, that is okay as long as you have informed the organizer in advance of the event (LATEST: by 12 noon of the day of the event) if someone else is going to use your ticket. Please send their full name, email address and their professional affiliation to info@womenstorytellingsalon.com
