No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. We ask that those who can afford to buy extra tickets, or who want to support but can't attend, purchase tickets to make space for those who can attend but can't afford a ticket. We encourage those attending to bring extra cash for raffle tickets and other additional fundraising activities.
